10MAY2013: Qatar Airways to initially use 10 narrowbodies for Saudi domestic ops
Qatar Airways (QR, Doha International (DOH)) says it is planning to deploy "ten narrow-body aircraft" onto its planned Saudi Arabian domestic operation set to commence operations out of hubs in Riyadh King Khalid (RUH) and Jeddah King Abdul Aziz (JED) later this year. In addition, the airline will operate under a different name, Qatar Airways CEO, Akbar Al-Baker, has confirmed. The winner of the other licence, Gulf Air (GF, Bahrain Muharraq International (BAH)), has yet to make public its plans, understandable given the state of its ongoing restructuring program. To cope with the anticipated upsurge in passenger numbers, the Saudi General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) is spending billions on upgrading the kingdom's airports though local players think otherwise, among them the CEO of nasair (Saudi Arabia) (XY, Riyadh King Khalid (RUH)), Francois Bouteiller, who claims the entrance of Qatar Airways and Gulf Air will be “chaotic” due to "insufficient infrastructure" in the kingdom.
