6th April 2011, a typo there.

QR really has untapped markets in the Middle East.

I think Cyprus is looooong over due, Shiraz, Iraq, Abha, Qassim, Tel Aviv (highly unlikely but could work)

Aleppo was pretty quick, they just signed the bilaterals few weeks ago and already have ALP announced.

I have listed out destinations/countries with which QR signed agreements in the past year or so, at least those that were open to the media. Of course singing bilateral agreements not necessarily mean they would start these new routes.

1) Canada: YYZ
2) Syria: Third Daily to DAM and ALP
3) South Africa: DUR, CPT, double daily JNB
4) Portugal: LIS
5) Uganda: EBB
6) Iraq: don't know how many cities.
7) Malta
8) Sri Lanka: "Additional frequencies" but informally from sources I gather QR can go 28 weekly from current 21.
9) Indonesia: due next month and most likely to get access to SUB
10) Georgia: TBS
11) Nepal: QR has rights to fly 4 times a day to KTM. As of today it flies 3 per day.

Other speculative destinations include ORD, LAX, AMS, SYD, ADD, one UK destination, PNH, PER.

I thought they would announce something "grand" as their 100th destination, a more prestigious destination. Nothing against ALP, but on a big scale of things, will people go "wow" QR flies to ALP...... ??


.....up there with the best!

I thought the same as well. In fact I was assuming they'd announce YYZ as their 100th destination and make a huge entry into Canada.

Nice addition to their network! Wow, I had to verify that they actually have 3 x day to KTM. Interesting...

Really? What is your source on this one?

I just wish Cyprus would be added! And Iraq; they are the only two countries which are not served by QR in the Middle East!

brightcedars, also to CMB - whereas UL flies to DOH only 4-5 weekly.
Now that Canada bilateral is approved, is there any chance YYZ will be launched before Aleppo, thus effectively making it the 100th ?

Aleppo is really only served by LCCs and second-rate flag carriers like GF, RJ, and RB (Syrian Air). QR will probably make a killing there being the only high-quality airline serving the market. Much better than bleeding money on a highly competitive prestige route like LAX, for example  .



Flying in the middle seat of coach is much better than not flying at all!
