Re: Arabian Aviation Thread - 2019

Qatar is increasing Doha-Belgrade from 7 to 10 weekly flights. Additional flights are supposed to operate from July to October.

DOH-BEG 17.10-21.25
BEG-DOH 22.35-04.50

Qatar planned on adding these flights last winter but nothing became of it. Hopefully they are extended into the winter.
