Qatar Airways CEO visits Florence, Pisa to celebrate more flights to Italy
He met with members of the Italian media and hosted a VIP dinner at St. Regis Hotel in Florence.
Qatar Airways recently launched direct flights between Pisa and Doha’s Hamad International Airport, adding to the airway's three other Italian flight destinations: Rome, Milan and Venice.
“Qatar Airways' growth in service to Italy represents the importance of the country in relation to our global route network, with business and leisure passengers alike requesting access to the popular destinations of Rome, Milan, Pisa and Venice,” Al Baker said. “I am delighted to have had the opportunity to meet local business and community leaders during my visit to Tuscany and experience firsthand the attraction and charm of this wonderful area.”
Passenger demand for flights to and from Italy has been on the rise. Last year, the airline significantly increased capacity from Rome, Milan and Venice by opting for aircraft with more seats.
Qatar Airways now has six daily flights to Italy: two each to Milan and Rome, and one each to Venice and Pisa.
