June 22, 2021: From early August, Qatar Airways will add Zambia and Zimbabwe to its expanding list of destinations in Africa.
The launch of Lusaka and Harare also supports increased demand for trade between Zambia and Zimbabwe and destinations on the Qatar Airways network such as London, Frankfurt and New York and from multiple points in China. With a total of 30 tonnes of cargo capacity on the aircraft per flight, Qatar Airways Cargo will play a key role in facilitating key exports from Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The new service to Lusaka and onwards to Harare is scheduled to be operated with a B787 Dreamliner. With the addition of these two new routes the carrier will operate over 100 weekly flights to 27 destinations in Africa.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said, “Not only do we continue to rebuild our network after the pandemic, but we are actively expanding it with the addition of these two key destinations. These are the fifth and sixth new destinations in Africa added to our network since the start of the pandemic, taking our total new destinations added across the globe to 10.”
