QATAR AIRWAYS ANNOUNCES MIAMI AS 6TH US DESTINATION
(Posted 22nd October 2013)
Regular travellers from East Africa using Qatar Airways will be pleased to learn that come June 2014 they will be able to fly with them via Doha to Miami / Florida.
This latest addition to the growing list of destinations will be a result of taking delivery of more B787 aircraft, which are able to fly nonstop on such extended routes.
The announcement came a day after the end of Kenya’s Magical Kenya Travel Expo, where Qatar Airways was one of only two foreign airlines with a stand, showcasing their business class flat bed seat, tried out by none other than President Uhuru Kenyatta when he visited the exhibition hall prior to the official opening. Qatar Airways currently serves Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Entebbe and Kigali in East Africa, making it an airline of choice for many frequent travellers.
In a related development it is now only a matter of days before Qatar Airways will formally join the oneworld global aviation alliance on October 30th, giving both QR as well as oneworld added clout through pooled resources, more opportunities for codeshared flights and cooperation across the world.
oneworld has only recently won more accolades when the Business Traveller Magazine voted them as ‘Best Airline Alliance’ for 2013.
