Qatar Airways: Flights to Brazil and Argentina coming soon
March 12- Qatar Airway will soon start its services to the South American countries of Brazil and Argentina, announced Chief Executive Officer of the airline, Akbar Al Baker, on the opening day of ITB Berlin, the world's largest travel and tourism show being held in the German capital. Qatar will start flights to Sao Paulo in Brazil and Buenos Aires in Argentina later this year. The two cities are an addition to other destinations planned for 2010, which include Copenhagen, Ankara, Tokyo and Barcelona. Last month, the airline launched its services to Bangalore, India.
Meanwhile, Boeing 777s will be deployed for the airline’s South American routes. The aircrafts will feature business class seats that convert into 180 degree, fully flat horizontal beds. “When I addressed this same very media forum at ITB Berlin last year, Qatar Airways operated a fleet of 68 aircrafts. Today we have grown in strength to 81 aircrafts - and in the past three months alone, we have taken delivery of nine brand new narrow body and wide body aircrafts from Airbus and Boeing to help fuel our expansion programme," said Baker while addressing journalists at ITB Berlin.
