Qatar Airways started non-stop service between Doha and Ras Al Khaimah on 2 February, its fifth destination in the United Arab Emirates. Ras Al Khaimah is known to be a gateway to many of the UAE’s natural treasures, popular for weekend getaways for travellers from the GCC, and a resort destination for longer stays for travellers from China, Europe and India.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We are delighted to launch our newest route in the United Arab Emirates – Ras Al Khaimah. Qatar Airways’ network expansion will undoubtedly increase the flexibility and choice for our passengers to travel to and from different Emirates in the UAE, and we look forward to enhancing passengers’ travel opportunities from Europe, Asia and the Americas to new tourist destinations in the region such as Ras Al Khaimah.”
