RAK Airways Expands Route Network with Flights to Doha

RAK Airways, a national carrier of the UAE, has expanded its route network with flights to Doha, Qatar. Effective July 5th 2011 RAK Airways will offer four flights a week to Doha.

 

RAK Airways CEO Omar Jahameh said, “By adding a sixth destination to our network we are providing travellers with a value offering to yet another exciting destination. The introduction of our Doha sector is in keeping with our strategic plan to add five new destinations to our growing route network before the end of the year.”

 

Jahameh explained the destination had been strategically chosen, “RAK Airways Doha flights will provide a value option to both business travellers, who can take advantage of the growing trade opportunities in Qatar and leisure travellers who will be able to enjoy all that the country has to offer especially in the lead up to the 2022 World Cup,” Jahameh concluded.

 

With the introduction of RAK Airways flights to Doha passengers from the Indian sub-continent will be able to take advantage of convenient connections to Qatar via Ras Al Khaimah.

 

Following Qatar’s recent 2022 World Cup win, business travellers are well placed to capitalize on the burgeoning opportunities in the country’s hospitality and tourism sector.

 

Doha is increasing in popularity as a tourist destination offering visitors a unique blend of cultural and entertainment attractions such as the Museum of Islamic Art and the Grand Mosque in addition to varied world-class shopping and dining options.

 

Included in the price of each RAK Airways flight to Doha is a full hot meal and beverages on-board all flights, a baggage allowance of 30kg per passenger as well as the normal hand baggage allowance and free shuttle service between RAK International Airport and the neighbouring emirates for each flight. RAK Airways also offers free parking for passengers who wish to drive to RAK International Airport which is 30 minutes away from Sharjah and 45 minutes away from Dubai.
