Ticket sales open for Qatar’s Ethiopian route


We announced earlier this month that Qatar was adding three flights a week between Doha, Qatar, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, (see here).

Ticket sales for this route have opened and can be booked via travel agents or online at www.qatarairways.com to take advantage of connections to popular destinations including London, Frankfurt, Paris, Montreal, New York, Chicago and Washington via the airline’s Doha hub.

Flights depart from Doha on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 22h15 and arrive in Addis Ababa at 01h40 the following morning. The return flight leaves Addis Ababa at 02h50 and lands in Doha at 06h15.

The new service will be operated with an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration of 132 seats in Economy and 12 in Business Class.

Addis Ababa joins a rapidly growing African network that Qatar Airways serves, among 19 other routes in North, East, West and Sub-Saharan Africa.

In the last 24 months the airline has added Benghazi (Libya); Entebbe (Uganda); Kigali (Rwanda); Tripoli (Libya) to its global route network, and re-launched flights to Kilimanjaro (Tanzania); and Maputo (Mozambique).
