Dedicated to offering more global connectivity than any other airline, Qatar Airways has announced that its global network will more than triple in size by mid-October.
Due to its resilient nature, the airline has even introduced several new destinations since the start of the pandemic, including Accra, Brisbane and Cebu.
On September 15, 2020, the carrier launched daily flights to Amman and five weekly services to Yerevan, which are increasing to daily from October 5.
Looking ahead, the following destinations are planned to resume flights or increase frequencies: Clark (increasing to nine weekly flights from September 20); Copenhagen (increasing to 10 weekly flights from October 15); Dhaka (increasing to seven weekly flights from September 19); Entebbe (three weekly flights starting October 2); Hanoi (four weekly flights starting October 3);Madrid (increasing to 10 weekly flights from October 1); Manchester (increasing to 17 weekly flights from October 15); Manila (increasing to 17 weekly flights from October 2); Seychelles (three weekly flights starting October 15); Stockholm (increasing to 10 weekly flights from October 15); and Windhoek (three weekly flights starting October 15).
Enthusing on the airline’s progress was chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker: “We are proud to be the leading global airline connecting passengers with the world, helping take people safely and sustainably to where they need to be. Having one of the youngest, most fuel-efficient fleets enables us to be agile and respond quickly to passenger demand. Our focus throughout the rebuild of our network is not only on restarting destinations but also operating as many frequencies as possible to provide our passengers the flexibility to travel when they want.
“By continuing to fly during the pandemic while others stopped, we have gained the trust of passengers as an airline they can rely on. We have taken more international passengers home than any other airline during this pandemic and as entry restrictions ease, we remain focused on our fundamental mission of carrying passengers across the globe safely and reliably. There are still millions of people who have not been able to be reunited with their friends and families and it is heart-warming to know our growing network will provide them an opportunity to travel home or take a trip to see loved ones,” he concluded.
