On the launch of the DOH-HYD route QR have expressed there interest to fly to 7 other Indian destinations other tha COK. This would mean QR would eventually fly to 11 Indian destinations, that is if the Indian Authorities approve.

Currently BOM/TRV/HYD and COK. Well of the remaining 7, theywould love CCJ if and when it is opened up!
Incidetnally they did operate to MAA a long time back although I guess they were holding out for TRV then.
Other than CCJ BLR MAA and DEL, I dont see where else they can try for?
Maybe GOI, to funnel in the holiday traffic?
Anyway, they have made life a lot easier for us guys in Kerala!
Good connections and good service!

Hi QatarAirways...

first of all, I ask you,or any one else to post the names of the cities mentioned above cuz I don't know what most of these codes refer to, thanks for the info any way.

second of all, I have a question a little bit out of subject, that is, is there any chance of QA to fly to Tokyo Japan?.... Thanks in advance.

What about Trichy and Kolkotta, both seem reasonable enough to warrant flights there.

Hi Qr, thks for Info.

well, being interested in flying is something and getting the necessary valueable rights might be another thing.... i doubt it. But anyhow its good to try and they have to find some additional 'niches' to be able to compete with their neighbors!

HDY taps good potential within India. I wonder when the first European carrier will tra to fly there.

Even though Indian Authorities are notorious for being tough QR wouldn't face too much of a hurdle. While I seriously doubt that QR will get all that they demand which doesn't only include new destinations but also more seats to existing destinations QR will at least get two or three more destinations soon. This is for four reasons.

- The current ASA between Qatar and India has some rights that are allocated to GF which will be transfered to QR. I am not sure but I think they include MAA.

- Indian Carriers currently offer more seats on India-Doha flights than QR is allowed too and the upcoming talks are supposed to level the playing feild.

- The local Indian population has been very active in Lobying the Indian authorities to allow for more flights so that prices could be reduced.

- A source from the Aviation Authorities told me that India is taking a more relaxed approach to Aviation which should see more rights given to more airlines in the region.


I also can't think of more destinations than what you already have listed, but it doesn't really matter because at most they will most likely only get 3 destinations.


Tokyo was mentioned by the Kuala Lumpur Local Manager but it doesn't appear on the destinations pipeline for 2003.

Hi QR,

i do hope that QR will get more traffic R. The potential is def. there.
Re India taking a more relaxed approach: do you know what the reasons might be? i doubt that the indian airlines can utilise the additional rights they get in reciprocal agreements, so are they targeting better royalities or what?

thks brgds
Amir P.S who is the current Sales GM at QR?
