Qatar Airways grows route network into Iran

Qatar Airways has expanded its operations in Iran in 2019 with the launch of routes to Isfahan and increased frequencies to Shiraz and Tehran.

The carrier will fly twice-weekly to Isfahan International Airport, its fourth connection to Iran with the launch of a new direct service from Doha’s Hamad International Airport with an Airbus A320 on 4 February 2019.

From 2 January 2019, three extra weekly flights will be introduced to the Shiraz service on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, taking the route to daily operation.

The airline will also introduce two extra flights on the Tehran route, with the addition of an extra flight on Wednesdays from 2 January 2019 and Fridays from 4 January 2019, taking the route to a triple-daily operation every day except on Tuesdays, when the service runs twice-daily.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said: “These latest launches are further evidence of Qatar Airways’ commitment to Iran, as well as the expansion of our network in this thriving market to provide greater connectivity to both business and leisure passengers alike.”

As part of its continued expansion plans, Qatar Airways plans to launch an array of new destinations over the coming months, including Mombasa, Kenya; Gothenburg, Sweden and Da Nang, Vietnam.
