Qatar Airways plans to connect new Indian cities

Premier Gulf carrier Qatar Airways wants to launch flights to new Indian destinations and add to its frequencies to bolster its operations as it hoped that discussion on bilateral air services would be held soon. The Doha?based airline currently operates from 13 Indian cities with over 100 weekly flights. Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker told PTI that the carrier is in talks with Indian authorities to get its ?futuristic deals? through in order to expand of operations. However, he refused to divulge details on which new Indian sectors and cities the Gulf carrier was looking at expanding as he said the new numbers would depend on ?how many they (Indian authorities) give us.? ?We have added 75 destinations since we stopped our operations from Nagpur sometime back,? he said. ?First of all, we don?t talk about our business expansion plans. We keep it very close to our chest. When we decide to do it you will get to know that,? he said when asked if they were looking at investing in an Indian airline. The Gulf carrier had reinstated its commercial passenger flight operations from Nagpur early this month with daily flights to Doha. Courtesy: The Hindu Business Line
