(MENAFN) Qatar Airways has flied its long-haul Boeing 777 aircraft plane to Mozambique, its 19th destination in Africa and 10th new route so far this year, Arabian Business reported.
The flight is one of three weekly services to the country's capital city of Maputo, as the Gulf carrier seeks to expand its business to underserved markets that have strong potential.
Qatar Airways already serves various destinations across the African continent including Alexandria, Algiers, Benghazi, Cairo, Dar es Salaam, Entebbe, Luxor, Casablanca, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Khartoum, Kilimanjaro, Kigali, Lagos, Nairobi, Seychelles, Tripoli and Tunis.
Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said Mozambique has historic links with Europe, being a former Portuguese colony, therefore, Qatar Airways eyes flying passengers with family, or business ties to and from Lisbon through its online points in southern Europe.
