Qatar Airways Plan Four New Destinations

Sat Feb 21, 2015 7:55 pm

They are planning on starting flights to Zanzibar, as well as three new routes in Pakistan i.e Sialkot, Multan and Faisalabad all with A320 from July/August at different dates.

http://airlineroute.net/2015/02/21/qr-s15proposal1/

Sialkot currently gets their freighters only and QR cargo were the first foreign carrier to fly there as DOH-SKT with A306F, it recently got linked to Ekaterinburg as DOHSVX–SKT–DOH 1 x A330F.

To Zanzibar onboard an A320 ? Is it within the range of an A320 ?
Not going to mention physiological factors and tolerances knowing QR's adequately equipped short haul fleet

DAR is 2 daily A320 and it's 35 NM south of ZNZ, so range is not a problem, maybe the flight will be combine with DAR or JRO, actually only Middle East flight in ZNZ-NBO-ZNZ is Oman Air, and the plane is quite full always, MCT-ZNZ-DAR-MCT.

Long ago I heard rumors that QR wanted to do DOH-MBA-ZNZ-MBA-DOH, but I think Kenya government didn't allow the flight same with DOH-NBO-JRO-NBO-DOH. Actually NBO is 3 daily and DAR 2 daily.

And last time I went to HAH I was told by a friend that Comoros government was trying to attract service to middle east, but I think they were talking basically with Yemenia, but I know many pax go with QR and EZE via DAR, so maybe they can try to get something with QR in the future as well.

Someone said here that Qatar-Australia bilateral is only what it's not allowing any more Australia flight so far, however with EK-QA partnership opening some more flight from ME to Australia
I a seems necessary to allow competence, so we might see more EY and QR soon.

it's not an impediment but going alone on routes like MIA or PHL and AA is easier than going against the other two ME3, but they will have too, sooner or later, maybe with A350

EY can open a ton of new routes to Australia tomorrow if they wanted, as they are a UAE carrier, like EK. The Australia-UAE bilateral contains very generous capacity allocations, and the number of available frequencies rises every year.

Not so with the Australia-Qatar bilateral, which permits 14 weekly frequencies. As QR are flying daily to MEL and PER they have maxed out Qatar's (the country) allocation. The bilateral needs to be renegotiated, which presumably they are working on, but it is definitely taking a while.

I agree. I also give the edge to QR starting LAX before EK starting MIA. The QR A350 would be ideal to launch the LAX route and being the new plane that it is that would slightly help marketing wise. If / when EK start MIA the most likely thing they will do is just launch it with a 777 as per the EK new route launching SOP handbook

I've heard a rumour that instead of matching EY's double daily 77W flights, that QR are examining running the A380 down to Melbourne to increase capacity on that city pair? I presume they will need to wait for further deliveries before that takes place, be interesting to see whether this happens? Their Melbourne flights are going very well apparently which would support this rumour.

Given that QR's 14x weekly bilateral to Australia is already maxed out, unless it is renegotiated, matching EK's double daily flights to MEL is not even an option so upgauging is QR's only current option if it wants to increase capacity to MEL.

The 14x weekly bilateral is not much at all IMHO and I have no doubt that QR would at least be operating twice that ammount of weekly flights into Australia right now if they were allowed.

Perhaps QR intend to launch LAX with the A350 so they could be just waiting for a few more A350s to enter the fleet or until the A350 proves itself?

Quoting VH-BZF (Reply 40):
I thought EK were triple daily to MEL?

You are correct. Only 1 daily non-stop, but 2 via SE Asia (SIN and KUL).

At one time QR was considering service to BOS from DOH. I am wondering is BOS still under consideration? If so, would flight time simular to PHL work early morning arrival and departure from BOS?

EK are triple daily to both MEL and SYD, four daily if you count QF metal.

Wow. That is seriously good news for those airports.

Wondering if after the addition of these 3 new destinations, QR will have more flights to Pakistan in total than EK?

No, EK still reigns there.

EK operates 42 weekly to KHI, 11 times a week to LHE and ISB each, and 5 times a week to PEW (resumed recently). That's a total of 69 times a week.
