|Quoting Jambo (Thread starter):|
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBILITIES OF QATAR AIRWAYS AND/OR ETIHAD AIRWAYS TO START OPERATIONS INTO NAIROBI OR PROBABLY EVEN DAR ES SALAAM ?
DAR? I wouldn't hold your breath. DAR, as I'm sure you know, is served by EK
daily plus BA
, Oman, Ethiopian, Air India and others who all offer connections. (Even Air Tanzania are reputed to be launching BOM and DXB
this year.) Remember that Gulf were there until a year ago but pulled out. I'd say there's not much spare capacity to be soaked up.
NBO? It's a bigger market (and therefore has more connections than DAR) and it would be a more attractive route for Etihad and/or Qatar.
Having said all of that, I suspect you're right. In the fullness of time either or both will serve NBO and probably DAR but I doubt if it'll happen within the next year or two.
