Qatar Airways Increases Seat Capacity to Kochi, India

Those who regularly seek air tickets to travel between Doha and Kochi, India will be a happy lot as the national airline of the State of Qatar, Qatar Airways, has announced that it will significantly increase the seating capacity on flights between the two cities. The carrier has decided to replace the narrow-body Airbus 321 with wide-body Airbus 330 to run the flights.
The airline has made it clear that the larger aircraft will be plied on all of its 11 frequencies to and from Kochi, a major port city in South India. The move, which comes at the time of the airline’s 10th anniversary of flight operations to the city in Kerala, is bound to put smiles on the faces of frequent fliers who seek tickets on the route regularly. Those booking tickets from Kochi can connect to over 125 destinations around the world via the airline’s hub in Doha.

The decision to increase the capacity on the route has been triggered by the increasing demand of flights tickets on the sector, said the carrier’s management. 

The Qatari carrier will offer two-class configuration on its A330 flights to South India. Travellers can either opt to block tickets for relatively cheap Economy Class seats that are 248 in number or choose to book tickets for 36 Business Class seats. 

Qatar Airways’ India operations include daily flights between Doha and Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Amritsar, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Kozhikode, Trivandrum, Chennai and Bengaluru. In addition, the operator offers tickets on double daily flights from Delhi, India’s capital city.
