Qatar Airways To Fly Doha – Copenhagen Daily

Doha-based Qatar Airways has announced plans to increase frequencies and capacity for its flights to and from Copenhagen, launched in late-March 2010. The airline currently operates 4 times weekly flights using a 110-seat Airbus A319, which will be upgraded to daily services with the larger Airbus A330 jets. Flight schedules on the popular route, which provides a convenient 1-stop link between Scandinavia and Asia, are expected to be finalized by Qatar Airways soon.

 

Qatar Airways is shaping up to become a major player in Scandinavian aviation, where it currently flies to Stockholm in addition to Copenhagen. The state-owned carrier is also studying the feasibility of flying to Oslo in Norway.
