Qatar Airways has announced a new daily service to the city of Luxor in Egypt.
The now daily service is an increase on Qatar Airways’ current five-times weekly service to the Egyptian city, and will deliver an additional 30,000 seats per year to the tourist destination.
Filled with deep Egyptian history and a rich cultural scene, Luxor is famous for possessing one of the largest concentrations of historical monuments and antiquities in the world.
The new daily service to Luxor omplements Qatar Airways’ existing services to Cairo and Alexandria. The additional services also provides local residents in Luxor with convenient connections to Qatar Airways’ 150 destinations across the globe.

The increase in services to a daily flight reflect the strong demand we’ve experienced on this route since our launch of flights to Luxor in June of 2004. I look forward to working closely with our trade partners and to welcoming our passengers on-board our flights to and from Luxor as we go places and create memories together.”
