According to eTurboNews, Qatar Airways launched its second new destination of the year when it touched down in Zanzibar recently. Zanzibar is the airline’s third route in Tanzania, following Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro.
The airline will initially operate five weekly flights from Doha to Zanzibar via Kilimanjaro. From 1 October the airline will offer two additional weekly flights, allowing passengers to fly non-stop to Zanzibar three times a week and via Kilimanjaro on the other four days.
Qatar is operating an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration on the Zanzibar-Doha route, with 12 seats in business class and up to 132 seats in economy.
