Qatar Airways has launched flights to Basra, its
fourth destination in Iraq. The new services, operating
four-times-a-week non-stop from the airline’s Doha hub, takes the
carrier’s global network to 128 destinations worldwide.

The launch also marks the rapid expansion by Qatar Airways in Iraq
since the middle of 2012 when it began flights to Erbil, followed by the
capital Baghdad and, earlier this year, Najaf.

With today’s route launch, Qatar Airways’ frequency across Iraq rises
from 12 to 16 flights each week – representing a more than 25% increase
in services.

The arrival of Qatar Airways’ flight QR448 was welcomed at Basra
International Airport with a reception presided by local officials.
Fathi Al Shehab, Qatar Airways Senior Vice President GCC, Levant, Iran
and Indian Subcontinent led an official delegation on the flight from
Doha.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said he was
delighted to see additional flights open up another entry point to Iraq:

The Republic of Iraq has been on our
list of expansion priorities for some time and the last 12 months have
seen us move forward very quickly opening up four new gateways in Iraq
with a fifth Sulaymaniyah starting in August.


“Qatar Airways’ commitment is strong
as we continue to build on our already strong relationship between the
State of Qatar and the Republic of Iraq. Opening up Iraq to the world
with more travel options and flexibility has always been part of our
general strategy to enter underserved markets and give the travelling
public to and from such places the ability to travel with greater
choice, bringing the world closer to them.
