Air Arabia increases frequency to Qatar for Doha Asian Games

With the increased interest in the Doha Asian Games, Air Arabia has scheduled extra return flights to Qatar to meet the extra passenger demand during the first week of December starting from the 26th of November to the 31st of January, a press release said.

Chairman of Air Arabia Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed Al Thani said: ‘A lot of effort has been made to ensure the event is a success and we are grateful to Doha International Airport and Qatar's Civil Aviation Authorities for enhancing Immigration and Customs facilities as well as arranging for a temporary airport terminal to be erected in close vicinity to the existing operating international passenger terminal to help airlines such as ours to meet the demand for additional flights.”

The Doha Asian Games is the season’s biggest attraction, where people of all ages and races will join in to cheer on the participating champions and witness sterling displays of stamina, courage and determination.
