Qatar airways Singapore Doha flights doubles

There are good news for everyone who can fly from/to Singapore by using Doha as a hub. Qatar Airways will introduce a second daily service on its popular Singapore route from May 1st 2011. And they will not stop there: three further weekly flights will be added by October 1st 2011 and then an extra flight by November 3. This will add up to 2 flights per day between Doha and Singapore!

As I have written before because of its quality of service and price, I have started to use Qatar Airways for my flights between Europe and Singapore. Boeing 777 planes they use between Doha - Singapore route are equipped with their state of the art Oryx in-flight entertainment system which is the best among I have experienced (I have flew by Singapore Airlines, Turkish Airlines and KLM in Europe route previously). And an important factor is the price, the ticket between Singapore - Istanbul is usually %40-%30 cheaper than Singapore Airlines which is flying directly between these destinations.

With the introduction of these new services, waiting time will be greatly improved. It will also be possible to chose a morning or evening departure from Doha or an evening and late night departure from Singapore.

Qatar Airways deals from Singapore

Singapore route must be very profitable for airliners:
"Singapore has been one of our best-performing routes in the entire region for a long time, with load factors consistently in the high 90s. The addition of a second daily service will allow Qatar Airways to grow the passenger market for inbound and outbound travel to Singapore," said Al Baker.

It is not only Qatar Airways. Turkish Airlines has recently increased its service to a flight per day between Istanbul and Singapore from 5 flights a day (they are using Istanbul as a hub flying directly from Istanbul).
