Aiming to expand its impressive network of 160 destinations around the world, the airlines will begin offering flights to eight new destinations this year, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, unveiled at the Kuwait Aviation Show yesterday.

HE Al Baker called the Kuwait Aviation Show “the perfect platform” to announce the airlines’ exciting plans for 2020.

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.

Travelers from around the world can enjoy more varied travel options with Qatar Airways whether they are traveling for work or leisure.

According to the announcement the new destinations comprise the following:
