Aug 21, Doha: Qatar Airways continues to demonstrate strong global growth with the announcement of new flights to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

The 'Airline of the Year' has responded to continued robust demand from passengers by increasing its Colombo service from four to five flights per day from 1 September 2017, just one month after the last frequency increase.

The additional non-stop, daily services to and from Colombo will be serviced by Qatar Airways modern A320s, adding more than 1,000 seats to the current weekly capacity to and from both exciting destinations.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: "We are again delighted to be able to cater to business and leisure growth in both of these vibrant gateway cities. When passengers travel with us on our non-stop service to Doha and onward to destinations in Europe, Americas and the Middle East, these additional frequencies will provide even greater flexibility, award-winning service and convenience that they can only experience with Qatar Airways.

"The increased capacity on the Dhaka and Colombo routes represents a major commitment by Qatar Airways to enhance our offering to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. We have demonstrated our long-term commitment to both countries that has been rewarded with the loyalty of many thousands of passengers per month who choose to fly with us. We look forward to welcoming even more passengers on our flights."

The Qatar Airways Airbus A320 features 12 Business Class seats and 132 seats in Economy Class. Besides a spacious environment throughout the entire aircraft, passengers across both cabins can enjoy complimentary inflight meals.
