Qatar Airways has added Sharjah and Dubai World Centrals Al-Maktoum International airport (DWC) to its list of routes, expanding the carriers international network to 136 locations.
The airline now flies to four airports in the UAE, with flights already going to Dubai International airport and Abu Dhabi International airport. The carrier will fly between Doha and Sharjah three times a day and to DWC twice a day.
The airline said both locations offered good business opportunities, and were part of its plan to increase its passenger capacity to 8 million by 2015. Sharjah, the third-largest emirate in the UAE, is the Capital of Islamic Culture for 2014 and DWC is close to Jebel Ali, one of the worlds largest ports.
