Qatar Airways has expanded its network in Africa to Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The addition of Kinshasa increases the number of destinations in Africa served by Qatar Airways to twenty-nine. “The new route will be served by a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, equipped with 22 Business Class seats and 232 Economy Class seats”, according to the airline. The airline is also increasing frequencies and increased capacity to Luanda, Angola. Qatar says the “network expansion provides passengers with greater travel choices within a key region of Africa, opening up a new entry point for international travel from Africa to China, Europe and the India Subcontinent using Doha, Qatar, as a gateway.”

“Starting from the first of June 2024, Luanda will see a frequency increase from one weekly flight to four weekly flights with a combined service to Kinshasa which the airline will serve for the first time” said Qatar Airways.

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Thierry Antinori, said: “We have seen significant milestones in our 2024 network expansion and this latest addition is particularly special, as it continues our strategic goal of increasing our footprint in Africa. The inclusion of Kinshasa in our network is the latest manifestation of our efforts to improve connectivity to Africa.”
