Qatar Airways plans flights to Kilimanjaro

Qatar Airways is planning to launch a new route to Kilimanjaro as it undertakes further expansion of its international network with five new passenger routes, more cargo services and capacity increases to a number of destinations.

Iraq, Tanzania, Serbia and Myanmar are featured in the passenger route expansion programme over a six-month period starting in May.

Qatar Airways will introduce a second Tanzanian point to its African map with the launch of flights to the Kilimanjaro International Airport.

New freighter services will be introduced to South Korea, Pakistan, South Africa and Oman, while frequency of passenger flights will be stepped up to destinations in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.

Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker announced the expansion at ITB Berlin, the world's largest travel show taking place in the German capital this week. Qatar Airways currently operates a fleet of 105 aircraft to 112 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.

"Today's announcement reflects the importance Qatar Airways places on expanding its portfolio of passenger and cargo destinations, and offer more frequency on existing routes to provide more choice, more flexibility and more options," said Al Baker.
