With the addition of four weekly flights to Kano (KAN), Qatar Airways has expanded its presence in Nigeria.
There will also be three weekly flights to Port Harcourt (PHC), all of which will depart from Abuja, Nigeria's capital.
Qatar Airways will fly to Kano's Mallam Aminu Kano International Airport (KAN), one of the country's fastest-growing cities and the gateway to the city's rich historical treasures that have lasted millennia.
Likewise, Port Harcourt, Nigeria's largest city and capital, will be serviced by the Port Harcourt International Airport (PHC), a varied and fast-paced metropolis on the country's southern coast.
This old port town has been transformed into a thriving, fast-growing city thanks to more than a century of international trade.
When the planes arrived in Kano and Port Harcourt, they were greeted with traditional water cannon salutes.
"This is a significant milestone for Qatar Airways, with Nigeria becoming our most connected market in Africa with the inauguration of our new routes to Kano and Port Harcourt," said Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker.
"We see huge possibilities in the region, and these additional lines will help to expand trade and business in the nation even more."
"Our presence in Nigeria now spans four critical markets, proving our commitment to the country."
"Throughout the pandemic, Qatar Airways has remained strong in its commitment to Africa, operating constantly and dependably to Nigeria."
"Since then, we've increased frequencies and expanded our network significantly, greatly boosting connection to and from the continent and giving travellers more choice and convenience."
In Nigeria, the airline presently runs daily flights to Lagos and double-daily flights to Abuja.
