Doha, QATAR – Qatar Airways is switching the launch date of its new flights to Azerbaijan and Georgia to the New Year due to operational reasons.
Originally slated to start operations on November 30, the new services to the capital cities of Baku and Tbilisi respectively, will now begin on February 1.
"With capacity increases planned on many routes, we face constraints on aircraft availability, therefore decided to revise these two route launch dates and move them to February.
We regret the inconvenience caused, but all steps are being taken to look after passengers already holding bookings," said Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker.
Passengers with tickets and confirmed bookings to and from both cities will be rebooked on alternative flights to their final destination.
