Qatar Airways to increase flight numbers between Doha and Dubai

Qatar Airways will increase the number of flights between Doha and Dubai later this month, bringing the total number of services up to 11 per day. In news that could interest people looking at Dubai property investment, the airline will add three new flights per day between the two cities from August 25th. Furthermore, ameinfo.com reports that flights now cover morning, afternoon and late night to ensure that people have a wide choice as to when they fly. Akbar Al Baker, the chief executive officer of Qatar Airways, told the news provider that that airline will not only continue to grow, but "step up" the frequency on its existing routes. He added: "It is also indicative that as we develop our international network with the introduction of new routes, we want to provide the travelling public greater travel options between Doha and our feeder markets such as Dubai."Last week, Emirates announced that it would be the first airline to offer flights between Dubai and Kuala Lumpur on the A380 double-decker jet.
