Qatar Airways announces Poland services to go daily

- PRESS RELEASE
Qatar Airways announced a capacity increase to daily scheduled services on the Doha - Warsaw route, effective February 1.
The frequency rise follows a pledge by Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker in December to introduce more flights on the Warsaw route once there was strong passenger demand.
"I have been pleasantly surprised how well the route has performed since adding the latest European gateway to our ever-expanding global network last month," he said.
"When we enter new markets, we do so carefully with limited capacity and then develop routes with more capacity once we see evidence that additional flights are warranted. Today's development is welcome news for the people of Poland with more choice of flights and a great international network to choose from, specifically to Asia, Australia and the Middle East."
Similarly, Al Baker explained that passengers from around the world will have more connectivity into Poland each day of the week.
"Serving popular routes with multi-frequency flights is one of our key strategies. We were confident that the Doha - Warsaw service would become a highly popular route, but didn't expect this to happen so soon," added Al Baker.
Marking Qatar Airways' 32nd destination in Europe, the Doha - Warsaw route was launched on December 5th with a grand welcome reception at the city's Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport.
Warsaw became the 12th and final new route of the year in the airline's expanding global route map covering Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
Qatar Airways offers the fastest connection times between Warsaw via the airline's Doha hub to popular Asian destinations such as Hanoi, New Delhi, Mumbai, Goa, Male, Riyadh, Bangkok and Colombo.
All flights on the Doha - Warsaw route are operated with a modern Airbus A320, featuring 144 seats in a two-class configuration of 12 in Business Class and 132 in Economy. The aircraft offers seatback TV screens providing passengers with the next generation interactive onboard entertainment system and a choice of more than 800 audio and video on demand options, together with an SMS text messaging service from each seat.
One of the world's fastest growing airlines, Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 15 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 116 aircraft to 123 key business and leisure destinations worldwide, the latest being to Gassim in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - the airline's first route launch of 2013.
Over the next few weeks and months, Qatar Airways will launch flights to a diverse portfolio of new routes, including; Najaf, Iraq (January 23); Phnom Penh, Cambodia (February 20); Chengdu, China (March 19); Chicago, USA (April 10); and Salalah, Oman (May 22).
