Qatar Airways has announced its network expansion plans for 2024, featuring a mix of new destinations and the resumption of previously served routes, ready for bookings ahead of the New Year. Among these developments is the planned resumption of flights to Venice, Italy in June 2024, followed by the introduction of a new destination, Hamburg, Germany, in July.
These new routes are expected to boost economic and tourism activities, leveraging Qatar Airways’ extensive network, which covers over 170 destinations worldwide. Venice is anticipated to attract significant interest from travelers in Japan, China, and Australia. Hamburg, on the other hand, is set to become a key gateway for travelers from South Africa, Thailand, and the Philippines.
