Qatar Airways to expand from Avinor Oslo Airport
Qatar Airways increases its capacity from Norway. From the end of March, the company will introduce four new weekly departures to Doha from Norway’s main airport.
This means that the company will double the daily departures from Oslo Airport as a year-round route.
“Norway is an important market for Qatar Airways, and we therefore want to offer our passengers an even better product by flying twice daily from Oslo directly to Doha. This is an international hub that offers a global route network that many Norwegians already use,” says Christian Deresjo, head of Qatar Airways in the Nordic region.
The route will be operated by the company’s new and fuel-efficient Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner and Airbus A350 aircraft with space for 254 and 285 passengers respectively. This increase in capacity will also contribute to increased freight capacity for the Norwegian seafood industry to Asia.
“This is a profitable route that has become very popular among Norwegian passengers travelling on holiday or business trip. The airport in Doha is a major international hub with good connections to destinations all over the world. It also increases the opportunity to transport more Norwegian seafood to attractive markets worldwide,” says Head of Traffic Development and Route Development at Avinor Oslo Airport, Gaute Skallerud Riise.
Qatar Airways also has four weekly departures with freight aircraft dedicated to the export of Norwegian seafood to Asia.
