Qatar Airways Increases Flight Frequency To Moscow

Moscow, RUSSIA: Having inaugurated its’ service to Moscow in August 2003, Qatar Airways has witnessed great success over the past year to the Russian city of Moscow, one of its’ 53 destinations on its growing route network.

To meet high demand, Qatar Airways has announced that it has increased flight frequency to Moscow from three flights a week to four times a week as of August 1, 2004. In addition Qatar Airways has also upgraded their aircraft to A320, which has a total seating capacity of 144 seats versus the A319, which was previously used to fly to the Russian city.

“We have also changed our flight operations from Sheremetyevo Airport to Domodedovo Airport, which will allow for easy, and more efficient access to all of our passengers,” said Chief Executive Officer of Qatar Airways Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

“Domodedovo Airport also offers a range of facilities and services such as train services that operates directly from the airport to the city, making it easy and convenient for our passengers to travel.

“With such a positive response since the inauguration of our service to Moscow a year ago, we are keen to further promote both, our services and Qatar as a destination of interest to the Russian people.

“The Russian people are becoming great travelers and we are keen to use this opportunity to raise awareness of Qatar Airways with both the travel industry and the Russian people,” added Mr. Al Baker.
