Qatar Airways launches additional daily flight to Madinah
Qatar Airways will be launching an additional daily flight to Madinah from Oct. 26, 2014. The additional flight will increase the number of Qatar Airways’ weekly flights on the Doha – Madinah route from seven to 14 weekly services, Saudigazette reported. Qatar Airways has been continuing its expansion to Saudi Arabia since it began in 1997 with non-stop flights to Jeddah. Since then the airline has added Dammam, Riyadh, Madinah Gassim, Taif and Al Hofuf to its portfolio of destinations in the kingdom. Ever-increasing passenger demand prompted Qatar Airways to increase its flights to Madinah from five per week to daily flights in April this year. And the introduction of an extra daily service from Oct. 26 is further proof of the expanding consumer and business demand on this popular route. Qatar Airways currently operates 79 weekly flights to Saudi Arabia which will rise to 86 flights per week with the introduction of the additional flights to Madinah.
