Qatar Airways is continuing its rapid growth across Africa and the Indian Sub-Continent with an increase in flight frequencies to Asmara, Eritrea, and to Dhaka, Bangladesh. From 7 September 2015, flights from Doha to Asmara will be increased from four to five times per week, representing a 25 per cent increase in capacity and enhanced connectivity, in particular for customers from North America and Europe.

And on 9 December 2015, flights from Doha to Dhaka, Bangladesh operated with A330-300 aircraft will also be increased substantially with the number of frequencies jumping from 10 to 14 weekly, effectively increasing capacity by 40 per cent on this popular route.

For the Doha-Asmara route, all flights are operated with A320 aircraft and the Asmara expansion comes only nine months after the Eritrean capital was first introduced in December 2014.
