Qatar hikes baggage allowance to cities in Africa

by Richa 7. October 2013 05:24

Passengers traveling with Qatar Airways are going to be a little happy. While most airlines are doing every bit to please their travelers, the Gulf carrier, following suit has announced its decision to increase baggage allowance. Passengers flying to various destinations in Africa including Entebbe, Kigali, Nairobi, Kilimanjaro, Dar-e-Salaam, and Addis Ababa will be able to carry more baggage between 7 and 10 kilograms, depending of course on their class.

The economy passengers will be able to add another 7 kilograms as the airline has upped it from the earlier set 23 kilograms. Business travelers will be able to enjoy additional weight of 10 kilograms up from the previous limit of 30 kilograms. The airline uses the services of Airbus A320 to serve African cities from Doha. This plane comprises a seating capacity for only business and economy class passengers. This route does not consist of First Class. However, these premier travelers will be able to carry up to 50 kilograms along with them to their destinations across the world.

The airline also announced that it would not be able to switch operations to the new airport in Doha until 2014. Apparently, the construction of the plush airport will take some time hence delaying the carrier’s plans to launch service from its sprawling premises. The new airport is equipped with several amenities that are set to benefit business and first class travelers and heighten their travel experience. The airline expects to launch its Airbus A380 superjumbo service from the brand new complex by March next year.
