On September 10, 2020, Qatar Airways will resume four weekly services to Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS) Lagos in Nigeria.
The four-times-weekly route will be operated by Qatar Airways’ state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with 22 seats in business class and 232 seats in economy class.
With this new addition, the Qatari airline’s Africa network will expand to 10 destinations with 44 weekly flights to the continent including Addis Ababa, Dar es Salaam, Djibouti, Kigali, Kilimanjaro, Mogadishu, Nairobi, Tunis and Zanzibar.
Chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker commented on the news: “We are delighted to resume flights to Lagos and further expand our network in Africa. We know the Nigerian diaspora is spread across the globe and we are thankful to the Nigerian Government for their support in helping us to reunite family and friends with their loved ones. With our mixed fleet of fuel-efficient aircraft, we are able to resume Lagos services with the right sized aircraft that will enable us to respond quickly to passenger demand and increase frequencies, offering our passengers more flexibility to travel when they want.
“With 44 weekly flights to 10 destinations across Africa and plans for further resumptions in line with the easing of entry restrictions, we are committed to supporting the recovery of international tourism across the continent while also maintaining vital supply chains to support African businesses,” Al Baker added.
The Doha-Lagos services will run on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
