Qatar Airways has added Mogadishu to its global network of destinations. Its aircraft landed at the Aden Abdulle International Airport in the Somali capital in a ceremony attended by Qatari and Somali officials.
“I am truly honoured to be here today to inaugurate our new destination. We have responded to the growing demand from customers for services to Somalia and from today we will fly three times a week between Mogadishu and Doha,” Vice President of Middle East, Africa and Pakistan of Qatar Airways, Ehab Amin said.
This new investment is a gesture of Qatar’s commitment to the African continent and to Somalia’s neutral position in the Gulf Crisis.
The East African country’s newfound stability has attracted a growing list of foreign airlines competing for its profitable aviation market.
