Qatar Airways to fly to Maputo
 
London, 21 June (AIM) – Qatar Airways has announced that from November it will fly into Maputo International Airport three times a week, making it the company’s twentieth African destination. The service will be operated by the airlines long-haul Boeing 777 aircraft.

In a press release the company stated, “Mozambique is another example of Qatar Airways’ commitment to open up access to destinations that are largely underserved by international airlines and have great market potential”.

The airline has recently launched a daily scheduled service from its Doha hub to the Rwandan capital, Kigali.

Next month it will start daily flights to Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and in August it will begin flying to Mombasa in Kenya. These are in addition to its current routes to Dar es Salaam and Nairobi.

According to Qatar Airways Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, “at Qatar Airways we have a robust planning team that is always busy evaluating and researching potential markets with the underlying mission to open up new destinations that are highly underserved internationally. Whether in Africa, Europe, Asia, Middle East or Americas, we have identified great opportunities where other carriers dare not venture into”.

He added, “Mozambique is a great example of a market that we believe has great potential linking up with key feeder markets in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world.”

Several other companies fly into Maputo, including the Portuguese airline TAP, Ethiopian Airlines, South African Airways and Kenya Airways.

However, not all airlines have found the route to be profitable. Over the last twelve months Comair and 1Time have dropped their flights on the Johannesburg – Maputo route due to a mixture of high airport taxes in Johannesburg and aviation authorities refusing to allocate favourable flights.
