Qatar Airways has said it is considering adding more routes to India but will not “dump” capacity until there is more traffic from the country.

“We will not dump capacity. But will wait until there is enough demand,” the airline's Chief Executive, Mr Akbar Al Baker, told newspersons here.

He said the airline is yet to fully utilise the air traffic rights granted under the bilateral arrangement with the Indian Government.

Pointing out that Qatar is the largest supplier of fertiliser and energy to India, he said there was enough traffic from both ways though the time had not come to increase seat capacities.

Qatar Airways flies to 11 cities in India and plans to upgrade the narrow body Airbus A320 aircraft to a wide-body A330 for its Bangalore flight.
