Qatar Airways is enhancing operations to South Africa by increasing weekly frequencies to Johannesburg and deploying new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft from May 1.

Three weekly flights will be added to the current daily schedule to Johannesburg, bringing the total frequency on the route to 10 services a week.

“The new services will significantly improve connections to destinations across Qatar Airways’ global network, and will particularly offer business and leisure passengers excellent daily connections to popular routes in the Far East such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Manila,” the airline said.

To coincide with the start of the additional services, Qatar Airways will also be introducing Boeing 787 Dreamliner on all services to South Africa.

Commenting on the new services, Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar al-Baker said: “In line with our commitment to offer our passengers more choice and the most exceptional travel experience, we are delighted to increase frequencies to South Africa and also to introduce Qatar Airways’ 787 Dreamliner on our routes to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Maputo.

“Our 787 Dreamliners give passengers a superb onboard experience with specially designed interiors, spacious cabins and custom-made seats in both business and economy class.”
