Qatar Airways (QA) will operate three weekly flights to Abuja, Nigeria, via Lagos from November 27, the airline has announced. This is the sixth new destination announced by the national carrier of Qatar since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Abuja service will be operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.
QA Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said, “We are delighted to be launching flights to the capital of Nigeria. With the strong Nigerian diaspora in Europe, the US and the UK, we are thrilled to now be flying to Abuja in addition to our existing Lagos flights which started back in 2007. We look forward to working closely with our partners in Nigeria to steadily grow this route and support the recovery of tourism and trade in the region.”
With flights to more than 85 destinations in Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and North America, passengers wanting to travel to or from Nigeria can now enjoy seamless connectivity via the Best Airport in the Middle East, Hamad International Airport (HIA). By mid-December, QA will operate over 65 weekly flights to 20 destinations in Africa, including Accra, Addis Ababa, Cape Town, Casablanca, Dar es Salaam, Djibouti, Durban, Entebbe, Johannesburg, Kigali, Kilimanjaro, Lagos, Luanda, Maputo, Mogadishu, Nairobi, Seychelles, Tunis and Zanzibar.
In line with the airline’s expanding operations across Africa, passengers can look forward to warm African hospitality onboard with the carrier’s multicultural cabin crew including more than 30 African nationalities. Additionally, passengers across our network can also enjoy a variety of African movies, TV shows and music on Oryx One, QA’s in-flight entertainment system.
QA travellers from Africa can now enjoy new baggage allowances ranging from 46 Kg for Economy Class split over two pieces, and 64 Kg split over two pieces in Business Class. This initiative is designed to offer passengers more flexibility and comfort when travelling on board QA. More information is available at https://www.qatarairways.com/en-qa/baggage/allowance.html
