Lufthansa announced that it will discontinue flights to Qatar by the end of October 2017.
The German’s national carrier, Lufthansa started flying to Doha in 1993 and continue to operate daily flights from Frankfurt via Kuwait.
“Despite substantial sales efforts, this route was found to be commercially not viable,” Lufthansa says.
According to ‘routes online’, Lufthansa’s Doha leg will cease on October 28 but its Frankfurt-Kuwait service will continue.
Qatar Airways operates twice daily flights to Frankfurt, and fly to other German cities of Berlin and Munich. Once Lufthansa drops the service, Qatar faces no competition on the routes to German Cities.
