Qatar Airways has launched scheduled flights between Doha and Stuttgart, the Capital of Baden-Wuerttemberg in Germany.
Stuttgart becomes the airline’s fourth German gateway and represents the first step in capacity increases across Germany during March, when additional flights to Frankfurt and Munich will be introduced. The Berlin route remains daily non-stop from Doha.
“For travellers from Stuttgart, Qatar Airways offers excellent travel options to a wide range of over attractive 60 destinations. The new route via Doha is highly customer-friendly as it is a quick and convenient connection to the entire Gulf region and destinations beyond,” said Stuttgart Airport Chief Executive Officer, Professor Georg Fundel. “As gateway to this region, Stuttgart Airport looks forward to welcome travellers from the Middle East and elsewhere, and thanks Qatar Airways for its commitment to include Baden-Wuerttemberg into its route portfolio.”
The introduction of thrice-weekly non-stop flights to Stuttgart, together with the airline’s additional German frequencies will take the total number of flights between Qatar and Germany from 24 to 34 services each week.
The Stuttgart route is operated with an Airbus A319 aircraft featuring eight seats in Business Class and 102 in Economy. The aircraft is equipped with the state-of-the-art Oryx Entertainment system offering individual TV touch screens in every seat and over 700 audio video entertainment options.
The aircraft also features OnAir mobile telecommunication technology allowing passengers to send and receive SMS and MMS messages, as well as browse the web using their internet-enabled mobile device.
Stuttgart is the airline’s 99th destination and fourth new route of 2011.
