Qatar Airways to Fly Across 27 Destinations in 21 African Countries

Qatar Airways has enhanced its presence in Southern Africa with the launch of a new linked service between Doha and Lusaka, Zambia and Harare, Zimbabwe.

The new linked service was inaugurated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900. According to the Group Chief Executive of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker, the airline has set ambitious plans for Africa which is home to one of the fastest-growing economic regions of the world, with rising consumer demand and an abundance of natural resources.

With this move, regional businesses are positioned to benefit from the airline’s cargo offering, allowing more than 30 tonnes of cargo capacity per week, each way to support the two countries’ exports such as vegetables and flowers to destinations on the Qatar Airways network such as London, Frankfurt and New York and multiple points in China.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the airline grew its network by adding four routes to Accra, Abidjan, Abuja, Luanda and restarting services to Alexandria, Cairo and Khartoum bringing its footprint to 27 destinations in 21 countries.

Earlier this month, Qatar Airways also signed an agreement with RwandAir giving customers greater access to the combined networks of both airlines
