Qatar Airways will continue its expansion plans by adding new destinations and purchasing new aircraft.
Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive, Qatar Airways, said that the award-winning airline will increase its reach to around 220 destinations by 2022 from the current count of over 164 destinations. Adding the expansion for its new destinations for its air cargo, the total number of destinations will reach around 250 destinations.
“Qatar Airways will continue its march ahead, we will continue expanding and continue purchasing new aeroplanes to fulfil our need for network expansion not only for us but also helping our partners in which we have invested to also keep on expanding the network and providing them the capacity they require,” he was quoted by a report in The Peninsula Qatar.
The airline recently received a specially-branded Boeing 777 aircraft painted in FIFA livery, ahead of the tournament’s Semi-Final and Final match.
