Dhaka increased by Qatar Airways

Qatar Airways has officially announced that it has increased its presence in the Dhaka marketplace as a result of an expanded bilateral accord that Qatar has signed with Bangladesh.

The new accord would allow QR to operate 28 flights per week as a result of which Doha-Chittagong was announced on 24APR as a new route to be launched in 2018.

As far as DOH-DAC is concerned, frequencies are increased from double to triple daily nonstop using an A330 exclusively (mix of A332s and A333s).

The new daily flight is a morning departure from DOH designed to connect with its second daily JFK-DOH + daily PHL-DOH service conveniently. The schedule of the triple daily operation is as follows:

Dep DOH 0900/1700/2145 Arr DAC 1650/0050/0535
Dep DAC 0210/0755/1955 Arr DOH 0515/1100/2300

Demand from DAC to the Middle East in 2016 was as follows:

JED 440,000
RUH 390,000
DOH 265,000
DXB 220,000
MCT 215,000
