Qatar Airways Increases Flights to KSA

Qatar Airways has announced an increase in services to Dammam and Riyadh, connecting travellers from Saudi Arabia to more than 150 worldwide destinations through the award-winning Hamad International Airport in Doha.

From 30 October 2016, Qatar Airways will add another eight flights a week to Riyadh and one more daily flight to Dammam, increasing its connectivity to the two major Saudi cities. Through its hub in Hamad International Airport, Qatar Airways will operate four flights a day to King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh, and five daily flights to King Fahad International Airport in Dammam.

Ehab Amin, Qatar Airways Senior Vice President of Commercial Middle East, Africa and Pakistan, said:

There has been significant demand for our services in the Kingdom within the last year, and we have stepped up our services to provide our passengers with the flights they need to make travelling more convenient.’

By adding more flights, we are offering our travellers more choice to connect to our extensive network. With the increase in services to 158 weekly flights from eight points in the Kingdom, Qatar Airways will also have more First Class seats available, allowing even more passengers to experience the airline’s award-winning premium class service.’

The additional flights take Qatar Airways’ total connectivity within the Kingdom to 158 flights a week, serving eight destinations: Riyadh, Jeddah, Madinah, Dammam, Hofuf, Gassim, Taif, and Abha.

Qatar Airways, the official sponsor of Al Ahli Saudi FC and FC Barcelona recently announced hosting a friendly football match bringing together both teams to play at Shiekh Thani Bin Jassim Stadium (Al-Gharrafa Stadium) on Tuesday, 13 December 2016.

Amin added:

The new increase in our services to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will enable fans of both teams to travel to Doha for the match in December, or travel directly to the clubs’ home town for matches, with more flight options making their journeys easier.’

Travellers from Saudi Arabia can take advantage of the increased frequencies to visit the new destinations that Qatar Airways has announced this year, which include exciting cities all around the globe, such as Los Angeles and Atlanta in the USA, Adelaide in Australia, Auckland in New Zealand, and numerous others in Europe, Asia, and Africa.
