Qatar Airways Adds Fly & Rail To Its Services

Doha - Qatar Airways has today launched an agreement with Deutsche Bahn to add Fly & Rail to its services in Germany. This deal will allow passengers connections to some 6,000 German railways stations.

At the official launch of the new product Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer Mr. Akbar Al Baker expressed his delight at being able to offer this new service:

“Together with Deutsche Bahn Qatar Airways will now be able to offer its passengers access not only to Frankfurt and Munich Airport, but to 14 further airports all over Germany. Passengers can book connections to other cities’ airports such as Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Dresden, Duesseldorf, Hanover, and even Basel in Switzerland, when they buy their ticket to Germany with Qatar Airways.

“In addition to offering connections to more cities which have airports this deal also gives passengers a chance to have rail connections to some 6,000 railway stations in Germany, covering a network of some 40,000 kilometres of rail track.

“Having one ticket for both air- and rail-travel makes the paperwork easy and convenient for the passenger, and travelling with both Qatar Airways and Deutsche Bahn, will ensure excellent service, reliability, and comfort throughout the entire journey.

“Fly & Rail is a realistic alternative to domestic flights, as the number of destinations accessible on the rail network far exceeds the number of airports in Germany, and chances are that the Deutsche Bahn can get you a lot closer to your chosen destination than a domestic flight could,” Mr. Al Baker said.

The Fly & Rail product is available from the affiliated travel agents with immediate effect. The product is available for the entire Deutsche Bahn network, and is valid on all train services, including the fast ICE.

Details of connections can be obtained either through Qatar Airways or via the Deutsche Bahn website www.bahn.de, which also offers an English service.

Connections will be available to the following German and Swiss airports: Basel, Berlin, Bremen, Dresden, Duesseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Hanover, Cologne, Leipzig/ Halle, Munich, Munster, Nuremberg, and Stuttgart.

Both German Qatar Airways destinations have ideal railway link, Frankfurt’s long distance train station is about 5 minutes walk from Baggage claim. Also Munich airport has an own railway station that makes a seamless travel very comfortable.
