“The UAE is a market that is strong and full of confidence,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker at the launch last week. “Today, Qatar Airways enjoys a robust operation in the UAE with 98 flights a week to Dubai, 28 flights a week to Dubai World Central, 42 flights a week to Abu Dhabi and 21 flights a week to Sharjah. Now with the addition of seven weekly flights to Ras Al Khaimah, Qatar Airways will have a total of 196 weekly flights from Doha to the UAE.”
Having launched Sharjah and Dubai World Central (Jebel Ali) in March 2014 and with the announcement to launch RAK in October this year, Qatar Airways is significantly increasing its operations to the UAE as a result of growing demand for more capacity in and out of the country.
His Excellency Engr Sheikh Salem bin Sultan bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Chairman of Ras Al Khaimah International Airport said: “Ras Al Khaimah is a global destination for both tourism and commerce and the new daily Qatar Airways QR1120 flight will service up to 400,000 passengers travelling in and out of the Emirate on an annual basis from October.”
Qatar Airways flies 152 aircraft to 146 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
