Qatar Airways is continuing its growth across Africa and the Indian sub-continent with an increase in flight frequencies to Asmara, Eritrea, and to Dhaka, Bangladesh.

From 7 September, flights from Doha to Asmara will be increased from four to five times per week, representing a 25 per cent increase in capacity, according to Qatar. All flights are operated with an Airbus A320. The Asmara expansion comes only nine months after the Eritrean capital was first introduced in December 2014.

Operated with an Airbus 330-300, on 9 December, flights from Doha to Dhaka, Bangladesh, will be increased from 10 to 14 weekly, increasing capacity by 40 per cent.

Qatar Airways group chief executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, says: “We are delighted to offer even more opportunities for our customers across the globe to connect through Doha’s state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport to both Eritrea and Bangladesh, flying on board one of the youngest fleets in the industry.”
