One of the top airlines in the world, Qatar Airways, has announced that it will increase its flight schedule to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Al Baker, the CEO of Qatar Airways, announced at the opening day of the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) in Dubai that the company will begin operating new routes to Tabouk and Yanbu in Saudi Arabia.
It will also start flying to Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates. The CEO, however, kept the launch dates for the new routes a secret. Currently flying to 160 different locations worldwide, Qatar Airways plans to increase its Gulf service. The airline runs out of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah in the UAE.
Al Baker added that Qatar Airways and Riyadh Air will work together to support one another by beginning additional routes in Saudi Arabia.
He expressed his delight about taking part in the ATM and said that they stay committed to offering their customers excellent services and goods even as they expand their network.
Al Baked said that a number of major international events scheduled for the upcoming years will draw thousands of travellers to Qatar, causing the country’s tourism economy to expand.
