Qatar Airways upgrades aircraft to add capacity on three routes

Qatar Airways has launched capacity increases across its global network, as three of the airline’s destinations received upgraded aircraft.

Guangzhou (China), Geneva (Switzerland) and Warsaw (Poland) have all received new aircraft types on their respective daily flights from Doha’s Hamad International Airport, the carrier said in a statement.

Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said: ““Qatar Airways is delighted to enhance the aircraft that serve the important destinations of Guangzhou, Geneva and Warsaw, almost doubling the daily capacity across all of these routes from Doha’s Hamad International Airport.”

The inaugural A380 flight to Guangzhou touched down for the first time last week and now represents the airline’s fourth A380 destination, after Bangkok, London and Paris.

Qatar Airways also commenced its second Boeing 787 Dreamliner service to Switzerland as the inaugural Dreamliner flight to Geneva touched down was greeted by a water cannon salute.


The route was previously operated by an Airbus A320, while daily flights to Zurich already operate with the Dreamliner.

Qatar Airways also welcomed the expansion of its service from Doha to Warsaw last weekend as a new wide-body service to Warsaw Chopin Airport commenced operation. The route was previously operated with the Airbus A320 aircraft.

The increase in demand for travel to and from the country and the airline’s steadfast commitment to the Polish market resulted in the introduction of the 260 seat A330 aircraft on the daily flight.
