Growing demand for flights to and from South America is prompting Qatar Airways to add capacity on its routes to the continent.

From 1 December, Qatar Airways will add 99 seats on each of its daily flights from Doha to Sao Paolo and Buenos Aires. Its existing aircrafting operating on the route, Boeing's 777-200LR with 259 seats, will be upgraded to Boeing 777-300ER with 358 seats. 

“Passenger demand from both the leisure and business segments has grown consistently since the launch of both routes in June 2010," said Qatar Airways' Vice President of The Americas, Günter Saurwein. "The region is a strong contributor to our route network and these additional seats will enable leisure and business segments to flourish.

Commercial passenger traffic from the two cities to the airline's network of more than 150 destinations via Doha provides travellers with some of the shortest travel times from South America, according to a statement from the company. All flights to South America will also feature three full meal services, including cuisine options in Economy Class, and a bespoke dine-on-demand five course meal in Business Class.

“The dedication to service sets the airline apart, and we welcome passengers to experience the genuine hospitality and warmth on-board,” said the statement.
