Qatar Airways launches new route to Luanda, Angola

Qatar Airways has expanded its route network in Africa with the launch of a new connection from Doha to Luanda, Angola.

Starting March 2020, the service will be operated five times a week utilising a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said: “We are excited to be announcing our new service to Luanda – the latest destination in our rapidly expanding African network connecting Luanda to key markets in the Far East, South East Asia and Europe.

“The new route to the coastal city of Luanda not only further solidifies the links between the State of Qatar and Angola, but will enable us to provide a seamless journey to and from this fascinating country and one of the world’s fastest growing economies.

“Qatar Airways is committed to growing our presence in Africa and adding to the 24 destinations in 17 countries we already offer.”

Qatar Airways operates a fleet of more than 250 aircraft via its hub, Hamad International Airport to more than 160 destinations worldwide.

The airline will also add new routes to Langkawi, Malaysia, and Gaborone, Botswana, to its extensive network in October 2019.
