Doha (DOH) – Dubai (DXB) has the highest frequency in Qatar Airways’ route network: this popular Gulf route is currently served by the airline 91 times a week, and will be increasing to 98 flights a week. DWC which is currently served 21 times per week will be increasing to 28 flights-per-week from 26 October.
The additional daily flight to DXB will depart at 1000 hrs, arriving in DXB at 1210 hrs and the return flight will leave DXB at 1330 hrs, arriving in DOH at 1:35 pm. To DWC, the fourth daily flight will depart at 1:30 am, arriving in DWC at 3:40 am and the return flight will leave DWC at 6:25 am, arriving in DOH at 6:30 am.
Qatar Airways has revised its Doha and DXB departure timings to significantly improve customer convenience. The 14 daily flights will depart from DOH on the hour and from DXB on the half hour. With the convenient timing of the flights, local passengers will have greater flexibility added to their travel plans.
Apart from DXB and DWC, Qatar Airways also currently operates three-flights-a-day to Sharjah (SHJ) and six daily flights to Abu Dhabi (AUH), and is the only airline which operates to these four airports within the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
