The eight new destinations to be part of the QA network this year will add to the recently announced gateways of Santorini, Greece; Dubrovnik, Croatia; and Osaka, Japan, HE Al Baker noted.

“With these new routes, our operations will expand to 177 destinations around the world, reinforcing our position as one of the world’s most connected airlines,” he added.

According to the announcement the new destinations comprise the following:
