“Qatar Airways’ growth in operations to Italy are extremely important in relation to the airline’s wider route map, as it is a central trading zone, with many countries from the Far East, Middle East and Africa connecting via Doha to reach the Italian gateways for both business and leisure purposes.

“In addition, Italian companies are having an ever-growing presence in the Gulf states, and Qatar Airways is well-poised to facilitate both freighter and passenger services with the increase in recently introduced capacity,” added Mr. Al Baker.

Qatar Airways flies with a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and an A330 to Rome double-daily, while operating an A330 double-daily to Milan and daily to Venice.
