In order to meet increased demand Qatar Airways has decided to increase the services to Colombo and Dhaka from September 1, the airlines will now have five trips instead of four to Colombo, while the Dhaka service will be increased from two to three flights per day.
The additional non-stop, daily services to and from Colombo and Dhaka will each be serviced by Qatar Airways modern A320s, adding more than 1,000 seats to the current weekly capacity to and from both destinations.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker said: “We are again delighted to be able to cater to business and leisure growth in both of these vibrant gateway cities. When passengers travel with us on our non-stop service to Doha and onward to destinations in Europe, Americas and the Middle East, these additional frequencies will provide even greater flexibility, award-winning service and convenience that they can only experience with Qatar Airways.
“The increased capacity on the Dhaka and Colombo routes represents a major commitment by Qatar Airways to enhance our offering to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. We have demonstrated our long-term commitment to both countries that has been rewarded with the loyalty of many thousands of passengers per month who choose to fly with us. We look forward to welcoming even more passengers on our flights.”
The Airbus A320 features 12 Business Class and 132 Economy Class seats along with the spacious environment. People with special dietary requirements can contact Qatar Airways before their flight to select from variety of special meal types available on request.
While business class passengers can enjoy their comfortable reclining beds and enjoy the on-demand à la carte menu service and luxurious Bric’s amenity kits, leisure and business travellers can take advantage of the exceptional value available to them through Qatar Airways Holidays, where there are value-priced hotels, destination-specific tours and holiday packages available to suit every taste.
Qatar Airways has been honoured with the ‘Airlines of the Year’ award by the prestigious 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards.
