Sanaa, YEMEN – Qatar Airways, the national carrier of the State of Qatar, has reinstated three flights between its hub in Doha and Sanaa on September 2, bringing the total number of services to Yemen to daily.
Services to Yemen were reduced to four-flights-a-week in October 2011 after being impacted by the country’s political instability. With the additional frequency resuming to daily flights to Yemen, passengers looking to travel to and from Sanaa will have more choice with further convenience and flexibility to their travel plans.
With the region becoming more stable, the additional capacity has been introduced to Yemen providing added convenience for both business and leisure travellers. Passengers now have greater access to a number of routes in the airline’s extensive network of global destinations.
Qatar Airways Commercial Manager Yemen, Wael Sabri Al Khaldi said the extra capacity would be a great boost for the travelling public to cities around the world.
“As part of Qatar Airways’ ever-expanding route map, a key pillar is to also evaluate existing routes and increase capacity where there is passenger demand.
“After a brief reduction of services to Yemen, Qatar Airways is pleased to be returning to the original frequencies,” said Al Khaldi.
Among the 118 destinations currently served by Qatar Airways are New York, Washington, Houston, Sao Paulo, London, Paris and Frankfurt – all better connected from Yemen with the convenient timing of the additional flights.
The Doha – Sanaa route is operated by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in First Class and up to 132 seats in Economy. Selected A320s feature seatback TV screens providing all passengers in both cabins with the next generation interactive onboard entertainment system – a choice of more than 800 audio and video on demand options.
Qatar Airways was recently voted World’s Best Airline for the second consecutive year following the annual Skytrax survey of more than 18 million international passengers.
The airline is continuing to expand at a rapid pace currently operating a modern fleet of 110 aircraft to business and leisure destinations from its Doha hub to cities across the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
