With plans to add two more destinations in India this winter as a part of its global expansion plans, Gulf-based air-carrier Qatar Airways will start its Goa operations by the end of this year.

According to reports, Qatar Airways will be adding five new destinations across the globe in 2009, including two in India.

The new destinations to be commenced in India will be Goa and Amritsar, which will be launched during the winter of 2009, senior airline officals said, adding that introduction of the proposed routes is part of the airline’s “continuous focus on enhancing connectivity and network.”

Qatar Airways currently operates 58 flights a week across nine Indian cities which include Mumbai, Delhi, Nagpur, Kozhikhode, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Trivandrum and Kochi.

On being asked on the rationale behind launching new flights when air-passenger traffic was on a decline due to the global recession, officials said that the airline was a network carrier and has a network strategy.
