Qatar continued to expand its African network in August with the resumption of its three-weekly flights to Mogadishu, Somalia. The service started yesterday September 6.

The carrier operates an Airbus A320 via JIB for its flights to Somalia. QR restarted its operations to Djibouti (JIB) back in July, at the time kickstarting an expansion strategy to reinstate several of its worldwide destinations.
