Qatar Airways is looking for Indian partners to meet additional capacity demand

Post a withdrawal of 28 weekly flights between Doha and the Indian cities of New Delhi and Mumbai, Qatar Airways is looking for Indian partners for an additional capacity on a temporary operating permit basis to meet the air traffic demand on Qatar-India routes. The allocated seat capacity in the Qatar-India aviation market has not been increased since 2009, and the Gulf carrier has submitted a formal request to Indian authorities to favourably consider its request for additional seat capacity “to help evacuate the stranded Indian passengers in Doha”.
“Qatar Airways is always open for partnership with other airlines, including Indian carriers. We will seriously consider any proposal for partnership from Indian carriers,” the airline said in a statement to PTI.
