Qatar launches flights to Djibouti


According to Breaking News Travel, Qatar Airways has continued its expansion in Africa with the launch of services to its latest destination, Djibouti, which began this week.

The airline commenced the three-times-weekly flights from Doha’s Hamad International Airport to Djibouti’s Ambouli International Airport, marking its 145th global destination.

The three-times-weekly non-stop flight to the East African coastal country of Djibouti is part of Qatar’s expansion plans to introduce new routes and frequencies to existing markets, and induct new aircraft into its growing fleet.

In September 2013, Qatar launched thrice-weekly operations to neighbouring Ethiopia, and in December will launch flights to the Eritrean capital of Asmara.

The Doha-Djibouti route will be served with an Airbus A320 featuring up to 12 seats in Business Class and up to 132 seats in Economy.

Key markets for Djibouti include London, Paris, Tokyo, Berlin and New York.
