Doha to become Emirates’ best connected destination

DUBAI: Doha is to become Emirates best served destination with seven daily flights going into the Qatari capital from 1 December.

Doha will take the top spot when it goes from six to seven daily flights, overtaking Bangkok s six daily services.

The extra flights into Doha are part of a 28 flight boost to the airline s Middle East services.

Muscat will go from two to three flights a day, Bahrain from three to four daily services and Kuwait will increase from five to six flights daily.

With the changes in place as of 1 December, Emirates will offer 276 weekly flights to destinations across the Middle East out of its industry-leading hub at Dubai International.

“This is a significant enhancement of our services in the region, giving our customers more choice and convenience”, said Sheikh Majid Al Mualla, Emirates Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations, Centre.

“With seven flights a day going into Doha, nowhere else on the Emirates network will offer as many daily flights. This overtakes Bangkok and is ahead of Singapore and London Heathrow.” “The extra frequencies will provide even more scope for customers to enjoy our award winning services, such as the ice in-flight entertainment system loaded with up to 1800 channels of movies, TV programmes, games and music, which can all be explored while savouring gourmet chef prepared cuisine,” Sheikh Majid added.
