Qatar Airways launches new route to Kolkata, its 12th Indian destination

Among the passengers on Qatar Airways’ first flight from Doha to Kolkata – the airline’s 12th Indian destination – were members of the international media, who posed for the airline’s camera.

  • Qatar Airways on 27 July launched a new route to its 12th Indian destination. The airline now flies daily between its Doha (DOH) hub and the eastern city of Kolkata (CCU) (formerly known as Calcutta) with 144-seat A320s. This is the second route between Kolkata and the Middle East after Emirates’ 12 weekly flights from its Dubai hub. Qatar Airways’ CEO Akbar Al Baker said: “As our 12th Indian gateway, the addition of Kolkata demonstrates Qatar Airways’ commitment to one of the world’s fastest growing economies with India’s rapid pace of development prompting the need for more flights to serve rising demand for air travel to and from the country.”
