Qatar to start Mozambique flights

Maputo - Qatar Airways said Thursday it will introduce thrice-weekly flights to Mozambique, one of southern Africa's fastest-growing investment destinations.

The flights from Doha to the capital Maputo, with a stop in Johannesburg, start on October 31.

"Whether in Africa, Europe, Asia, Middle East or Americas, we have identified great opportunities where other carriers dare not venture into," said the airline's chief executive Akbar Al Baker.

"Mozambique is a great example of a market that we believe has great potential linking up with key feeder markets in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world."

Mozambique is the airline's 20th destination in Africa.

The former Portuguese colony, which remains one of the world's poorest countries nearly two decades after a devastating civil war, has seen a flood of investment recently.

Its economy has regularly posted strong growth, estimated at 7.5% this year.

Foreign investment has been buoyed by recent discoveries of natural gas and growing exports of coal as well traditional commodities like wood, sugar and tobacco.
