Some of the specific destinations that it will now be including in its offerings are the capitals of Western Australia, Perth, Helsiniki the capital of Finalnd and Zagreb, the capital of Croatia as well as Gassim in Saudi Arabia. There will also be flights to Kigali, Mombasa and Zanzibar which are all cities in East Africa.

The flights will all start at Doha where the airlines hub is and they will be launched over the next few months. There will also be flights to the Azerbaijan capital Baku and Georgia’s capital Tbilisi, which had previously been announced and will start on the 1st February 2012.

The chief executive officer of Qatar Airways, Akbar Al Baker explained that when the company started they introduced new routes and planes at a very fast rate and they aim to continue to do that. He said that they have plans to not only provide transport to leisure and business areas that are popular worldwide, but to also serve new markets where others do not dare to visit. He explained that they do this because they feel it makes business sense to do so. The company was named as the Leading Airline Business Class for the Middle East at the World Travel Awards this year and they will be taking part in the grand final in January, to see if they can win the worldwide title.
