qatar-airways-logoQatar Airways is adding Al Hofuf in Saudi Arabia to its ever-increasing list of destinations. And as a further demonstration of its commitment to expanding its regional footprint, Qatar Airways recently increased the frequencies of two of its other destinations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Strong passenger demand has prompted the Doha-based airline to double its weekly flight frequency to Gassim, while flights to Madinah recently increased from five to seven per week.  The additional new destination of Al Hofuf, through Al Ahsa Airport (HOF), is further proof of the increasing consumer and business demands on these popular Saudi Arabian routes.

Details of the new and additional frequencies are as follows;

Al Hofuf (Saudi Arabia) a new service of 4 flights per week starting on 15 May
Gassim (Saudi Arabia) a doubling from 4 to 8 flights per week from 15 May
Madinah (Saudi Arabia) increased from 5 to 7 flights per week from 30 March

The increase in frequency on these routes, together with the new destination of Al Hofuf, will mean that Qatar Airways will now fly to seven destinations in Saudi Arabia and will operate 79 flights per week to the country.
