Qatar Airways increases frequencies to Eastern Europe and the Nordics

Qatar Airways has doubled its frequencies to a number of destinations in Eastern Europe and the Nordics, following a significant increase in passenger demand to the popular destinations of Prague, Warsaw and Helsinki.

Commencing mid-December, the airline will introduce an extra daily flight on each of the routes to meet the growing inbound and outbound travel demand by adding an Airbus A320 service, offering an additional 132 daily seats in both directions.

The frequency increases, the latest in a number of such upgrades across the Qatar Airways route network, come just eight weeks after the airline launched its direct service to Prague, Czech Republic, on its first anniversary of scheduled service to Helsinki, Finland, and more than a year since the daily service to Warsaw, Poland was upgraded to a wide-body Airbus A330 service.

Qatar Airways’ increase in frequency to Helsinki, announced on the first anniversary of the route, will now mean that the airline serves the Nordic capital cities of Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki with a total of 98 flights per week, to and from HIA. Alongside Helsinki’s current Boeing 787 service, the cities of Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo are also served with a fleet of Dreamliner aircraft.

The additional frequencies to Prague, Helsinki and Warsaw will be operated by Airbus A320, featuring 12 Business Class seats and 120 Economy Class seats, supplementing the current Airbus A320 service to Prague, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner service to Helsinki and the Airbus A330 service to Warsaw.

Passengers travelling in Business Class can look forward to relaxing in one of the most comfortable and high-tech, fully-flat beds as well as avail of the five-star food and beverage service, which is served ‘dine on demand.’ Passengers can also enjoy the airline’s award-winning in-flight entertainment system, Oryx One, offering up to 4,000 entertainment options.
