Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways has finally revealed its flight schedules for its new Amritsar and Goa bound flights. The ATQ bound flights, I correctly predicted would be timed as per their current DOH-DEL-DOH flight timings :)

Both ATQ and GOI connect very well in both directions with JFK, IAD, IAH, LON, MAN and GCC markets which are the main target markets to help feed the flight along side O&D traffic volume.

For ATQ, QR will also be targetting the large Sikh community residing in Northern Italy (60,000) and France (10,000) for which its flights connect nicely twice a week via DOH.

Both ATQ and GOI will be flown 4 times per week nonstop from DOH using an Airbus A 320-200.

Frequency: 4 times per week

Days of operation: MON/TUE/FRI/SUN
