Qatar Airways Expands African Network, Launches First Flight to Kinshasa

Qatar Airways has expanded its reach in Africa, now offering a new gateway to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, linking Kinshasa with Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

The airline's inaugural flight from Doha to Kinshasa touched down at N’djili International Airport on Saturday, June 1, 2024, increasing the total number of African destinations served by Qatar Airways to 29.

This new route connects Kinshasa to the world through Qatar Airways’ Doha hub, Hamad International Airport, which was named the 'World’s Best Airport' by Skytrax in 2024.

This strategic expansion will enhance air connectivity across Africa, fostering stronger economic and business opportunities as well as enriching cultural ties.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer, Engr. Badr Mohammed Al-Meer, said: “At Qatar Airways, we recognise the immense potential in Africa. We are dedicated to enhancing connectivity throughout the continent, enabling seamless access to business and leisure opportunities. We look forward to offering our passengers travelling to and from the DRC convenient travel options through our award-winning hub, Hamad International Airport.”

The four weekly services will also increase capacity to Angola, raising the number of flights to Luanda from one to four. The addition of Kinshasa also complements the airline's over 170 weekly flights across Africa, emphasising Qatar Airways' commitment to enhancing connectivity throughout the continent.

There has been a strong growth in the market with nine (9) new destinations operated by Qatar Airways in Africa since December 2020. Abidjan, Abuja, Accra, Kinshasa, Harare, Kano, Luanda, Lusaka, and Port Harcourt are the African cities newly added to the extensive Qatar Airways network, while Cairo and Alexandria were resumed.

In addition, Qatar Airways schedules in most of the Africa markets have been optimised in the last 12 months to ensure convenient connectivity to China. It is also the case with Luanda, and now Kinshasa with this new flight that conveniently connects with key markets such as Belgium, France, Portugal and the Middle East.
