KARACHI (PR): Qatar Airways is strengthening its commitment to Pakistan with a 60 per cent frequency increase.

Starting June 1, Qatar Airways will be operating 28 flights each week instead of 14 to three cities in Pakistan – Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar.

The Doha-based airline will double its frequency on the Karachi route by introducing two flights a day from the current daily flights; Lahore from four to seven flights a week; and Peshawar securing an additional flight to three services each week.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker explained the importance of growth in Pakistan, saying: “We have had a well-established operation in Pakistan for many years, but have always been looking to increase frequency and now thanks to new agreements in place between the relevant authorities, we can soon enjoy more capacity between Qatar and Pakistan.
