1. Why Malta as one of your new destinations and how does Malta fit with the Qatar Airways’ strategy for expansion?
Malta is part of Qatar Airways continued expansion plans which provide the launch of a host of exciting new routes throughout 2018/19.
Malta represents an important new destination for our passengers who want to discover and explore this interesting country, a combination of cultural, artistic and natural treasures. Qatar Airways will also provide the Maltese people with a new gateway to the world, the direct route would link Malta with Doha and more than 150 destinations. The choice of Malta also demonstrates Qatar Airways ongoing commitment to expand its reach with ambitious new routes around the globe to offer its unrivalled five-star customer service wherever passengers want to fly.
2. What is your target market for bringing people to Malta ( leisure or business oriented).
Malta is accessible to a wide range of audience, those interested in its historical centres, islands, local craftsmanship and unique iconic tourist attractions and those travelling for conferences and exhibitions or meetings and incentive travel. Qatar Airways is suited to the needs of both business and leisure international travellers, whether they want to work, sleep, dine, or just relax, and is really delighted to support Malta in receiving solid increases in quality travel demand and visitation.
3. ..and how are you talking to them about the new service? ( e.g. what media are you using, are they your frequent flyers or a new market?)
The announcement of the nonstop service took place at the word’s most important International Trade Show in Berlin in March 2018. There was a huge presence of international media which has been continuously reporting about our expansion plan. As Malta is becoming part of our network early next year, you will see an even more increasing number of articles and stories on ideas how to spend the time in wonderful Malta.
4. Why would a passenger choose to fly Qatar Airways to Malta?
Qatar Airways’ existing services to Europe are incredibly popular. Every day, thousands of passengers experience a seamless connection between flights through our state-of-the-art Doha hub at Hamad International Airport, and now we have made it even easier for travellers to reach one of the most beautiful European Islands.
People from all over the world will be able to reach Malta experiencing the high comfort of Qatar Airways’ seats, the excellent technological equipment and exclusive services, from the amazing food experience to the over 4000 entertainment options, a wide selection of movies, TV, games and music.
5. What luxuries or benefits do you offer? (Oryx Kids’ Club would be popular here!)
At Qatar Airways, we always seek to enhance the travel experience of our passengers of all ages. For this reason, we’ve recently announced the launch of Oryx Kids Club On-Board Children's Programme, offering an enhanced experience for our youngest travelers. New special toys, amenity packs and meal boxes featuring the Oryx Kids Club super heroes have been included to ensure that our youngest travellers are entertained from the moment they board the aircraft, alongside our dedicated children’s channels on the Oryx One entertainment system.
At the beginning of this year we also refreshed our Frequent Flyer Programme, Privilege Club to make the members’ experience with Qatar Airways easier and more seamless than ever before.
