Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that it will add four additional weekly flights to Sohar, its newest destination in the Sultanate of Oman, from 1 October. The additional frequency was added in response to increased passenger demand and will take the number of weekly flights between Doha and the Sultanate of Oman from 52 to 56.
The award-winning airline launched flights to Sohar, its third and most recent destination in the Sultanate of Oman, last month. Sohar, a vibrant coastal city known both for its traditional Omani culture and beautiful beaches, offers a wide range of activities for tourists, including diving, snorkeling, and kiteboarding, as well as many traditional markets featuring Omani handicrafts.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, said they are delighted to see robust demand on the Doha–Sohar route, especially given that the service was launched only last month. He said that the increased frequency will allow both business and leisure travellers from Sohar even more flexibility to take advantage of smooth connections to India and Southeast Asia via the Hamad International Airport. The additional flights to Sohar will be serviced by an Airbus A320.
Qatar Airways first began service to the Sultanate of Oman by launching flights to the capital, Muscat in 2000. In 2013, Salalah was added to the airline’s growing network as the second destination in the Sultanate of Oman. The award-winning airline currently operates five daily flights between Doha and Muscat and two daily return flights on the Doha-Salalah route.
Passengers transiting through Hamad International Airport can take advantage of the many activities and services available, from the free Wi-Fi, airside swimming pool and play areas for children, to the multiple quiet areas where passengers can relax, as well as an amazing array of duty-free shopping and dining options.
Qatar Airways has a host of exciting new destinations planned for the remainder of this year and 2018, including Canberra, Australia; Chiang Mai, Thailand and San Francisco, US, to name just a few.
The national carrier of the State of Qatar is one of the fastest-growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world. Now in its twentieth year of operations, Qatar Airways has a modern fleet of 200 aircraft flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents.
