Qatar Airways launches a new service
The historic city of Sarajevo is set to join Qatar Airways’ expanding network as the airline announces its expedited expansion plans to the famous Balkan city in October.
The capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina is now becoming the latest must-see destination for leisure travellers, combining its rich history with a modern atmosphere to offer a unique cultural mix. Visitors can experience stunning views of the city and surrounding mountains from one of Sarajevo’s many viewing platforms, and visit Baščaršija, an Ottoman bazaar in the heart of the city boasting many remarkable historical and cultural sights.
The announcement of the new four times-weekly service, set to begin on 31 October, is part of the airline’s expedited expansion into Eastern Europe, with the recent launch of four times-weekly service to Skopje as well as daily flights to Prague, Czech Republic and Kiev, Ukraine set to begin later this month.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said that the flights to Sarajevo are significant steps toward increasing their presence in Eastern Europe.
Adding Sarajevo to our global network will allow passengers in Bosnia-Herzegovina to connect to more than 150 destinations worldwide through our five-star hub, Hamad International Airport.’
The service between Doha and Sarajevo will be operated four times weekly by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class. As well as enjoying the award-winning in-flight service on board the Skytrax Airline of the Year 2017, passengers will also have access to Oryx One, Qatar Airways’ in-flight entertainment system offering the latest blockbuster movies, TV box sets, music, games and much more.
An exciting year for the airline continues with a total of 26 new destination launches set to take place through the rest of 2017 and into 2018.
Qatar Airways, the national carrier of the State of Qatar, is one of the fastest growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world.
