Qatar airways to increase capacity to Bengaluru

Qatar Airways is continuing its expansion plans in India with a significant increase in capacity on its flights from Doha to Bengaluru from August this year to meet the increasing passenger demand on the route.
Currently Qatar Airways operates a Boeing 787 on the Doha Bengaluru route with 254 seats. Starting August 1, the Boeing 787 will be replaced by a Boeing 777, with a capacity of 335 seats, which will connect to more than 140 destinations worldwide via the airline’s state-of-the-art hub in Doha.
“The strengthening of the Doha–Bengaluru route reflects increased passenger demand and reaffirms our continuous expansion strategy for the Indian market. India is growing as an economic hub and shows enormous potential, and our growth strategy has always stressed the significance of the Indian market where we plan to seek even more capacity and increase frequency on existing routes,” said Group chief executive of Qatar Airways Akbar Al Baker.
Qatar Airways’ Boeing 777 has been designed to ensure that its passengers can fly long distances while immersed in complete comfort and enjoy the five-star airline’s legendary hospitality.
