QATAR AIRWAYS is adding Al Hofuf in Saudi Arabia to its ever-increasing list of destinations.

And as a further demonstration of its commitment to expanding its regional footprint, the airline recently increased the frequencies of two of its other destinations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, says the company. 

The Doha-based airline is doubling its weekly flight frequency to Gassim, while flights to Madinah have increased from five to seven per week. 

“The additional new destination of Al Hofuf, through Al Ahsa Airport (HOF), is further proof of the increasing consumer and business demands on these popular Saudi Arabian routes,” says a statement.

The increase in frequency on these routes, together with the new destination of Al Hofuf, means that Qatar Airways operates 79 flights a week and to seven destinations in Saudi Arabia.
