Qatar Airways Set To Increase Flights To Germany

According to the article QR is set to increase flights to Germany upto 35 per week. While the article says it is an increase from 21 pw to 35 pw; QR already has 24 weekly services to Germany. 10 weekly to FRA, and a daily each to MUC and TXL. The last bilateral agreement was signed in November 1996.

Also, QR and LH code share on each others flights to Germany. LH code shares on all QR flights to FRA and MUC (no code share to TXL) while QR code shares on LH's daily FRA-RUH-DOH flight.

While it does seem obvious that FRA will go from 10 weekly to 14 weekly; the remaining 7 weekly IMO will be used to open up a new destination. What could it be HAM? STR?

This is very good news. I just hope there will be a similar expansion of traffic rights with the UAE, so that EK and EY can have more flights to Germany as well.

HAM and DUS would seem likely, unless QR decides it is better to go somewhere EK doesn't so they might rather fly to STR, CGN or HAJ.

Hope for DUS, and this would serve the Benelux market very well too...

QR is opening BRU in January, so I don't think it will be DUS.. HAM would seem likely, or HAJ.

QR is allowed now 35 weekly flights to Germany across 5 airports. They already use 3 i.e FRA, MUC, TXL. While I do think they will increase FRA to 14 weekly, there is every chance that they won't and instead open up two more airports with a daily and a 4 pw flight. So the potential airports are DUS, HAM, STR, CGN ... not sure if HAJ is a strong contender.

Seeing the EK, EY patterns, is Germany restricting the big 3 to 14 weekly at FRA?

Interesting that the bilateral was signed back in 1996. Back then the German government realistically only expected limited growth for QR in Germany if any, while LH would have the 'lion's share' of the market in DOH. Back then GF had a hub at DOH, but even had they would hardly been expected to use half let alone all of those frequencies available.

They get 11 new frequencies and two new airports. I am not sure they'll take four of the freqs to FRA, leaving only seven for two new airports. I would rather follow the approach of opening one new dest with a daily and one with 4/week.

My money would be on STR and CGN, because DUS and HAM are already served by EK. HAJ is number five in that list, but still before NUE and all others.

I don't know. EK is restricted to four airports and I think they do all the freqs to Germany that they can. Not sure about EY, but they are both limited by the same agreement since it is between Germany and the UAE.

a daily to DUS would make sense, using the remaining 4 pw for upgrades at the existing poiints. All the others would not be feasible. QR codeshares with LH and has interline access to all German airports served by LH

Agreed. I've heard snippets (nothing concrete) that DUS is being considered as a future destination for QR. There are quite a few onward opportunities with LH for passengers via DUS to N. America.

MIA, MCO, New York, ORD, YYZ. You have them all from FRA and all except MCO from MUC as well, so DUS doesn't really bring that much of an advantage.

This is really interesting! Should QR actually decide to grow outside of FRA, MUC and TXL it would make most sense to start STR - alone for the fact that EK wants to fly there but won't get the rights [anytime soon]. This would be the only viable destination with no direct competition.
