A dozen cities will see more flights added to existing frequencies to offer passengers greater choice. Guangzhou becomes Qatar Airways’ first route launch of the year on March 31 and the airline is preparing for its third US destination – Houston beginning on November 10.

Expansion highlights include an extra daily flight to London Heathrow taking capacity to Britain’s busiest airport up to four flights a day; Beirut rising to double daily flights; and both Johannesburg and Seoul going up to daily.

Between Qatar and Germany, Qatar Airways operates 24 flights a week – 10 to Frankfurt and daily to both Berlin and Munich. The airline looks forward to opening up further destinations in Germany over the next few years as part of its growth strategy to widen its presence in the German market.



Hopefully QR will be successful with its plans to start new services to Germany.

Interesting, hopefully get some of those new 777s they've got down here soon...

Most of the growth will be through capacity enhancements on existing routes, rather than new routes; AAB's recent comments suggest only one more new route this year.

Is there any indication yet of QR's 77L configuration?

No First Class planned:

Qatar Airways will deploy a Boeing 777-200LR in a two-class configuration of 42 seats in Business Class and 217 seats in Economy. Business Class has a 2–2–2 seating configuration and Economy Class 3–3–3 seating.
