Qatar Airways is increasing its flight frequency from Manchester to Doha from two to three flights per day from tomorrow (June 14).

It will give passengers more options to connect with other Qatar Airways services, the most popular of which from Manchester include Bangkok, Perth, Bali, the Maldives and Kuala Lumpur.

The airline said the extra service was “another show of confidence in the UK market”.

The route launched in April 2003 and went double-daily in February 2011.

The move to triple-daily flights will see an increase in capacity of approximately 35% on the route.

Gary Kershaw, Qatar Airways’ UK and Ireland country manager, said: “Since launching in 2011, Manchester has performed exceptionally well, proving to be one of our most successful UK routes.

“The demand from our customers meant it was only a matter of time before we increased our flight frequency.”

Julian Carr, Manchester Airport aviation director, added: “[Qatar Airways] is hugely popular with our passengers thanks to their modern fleet, superb onboard product and the number of connections they offer through Doha.”

Qatar Airways also flies from Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.

Last month, it announced it will increase its Gatwick-Doha service to three flights a day between June 29 and October 1.
