Qatar Airways is today (July 29) resuming three-times-weekly flights to Helsinki, Finland.
This addition makes the carrier the only airline in the GCC to service four Nordic capitals.
Qatar Airways will now operate 22 weekly flights to the Nordics, with daily flights to Oslo and Stockholm, and five weekly flights to Copenhagen.
Enthusing on the good news was chief executive, Qatar Airways Group, HE Akbar Al Baker: “We are glad to see Helsinki return to our network, a significant indicator of the recovery of the Nordic travel market. With a total of 22 weekly flights to the region we are delighted to be the first Gulf carrier to offer flights to the four Nordic capitals of Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm.”
HE Al Baker added: “While the drop in air travel demand due to Covid-19 forced us to temporarily suspend services to Helsinki, we are proud to have never stopped flying to Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm. As we pass the worst of the crisis, we look forward to increasing our services to the Nordic region to support the recovery of tourism and trade in the region.”
Qatar Airways continues to spearhead the resumption of international air travel. By the start of August, its network is expected to expand to close to 500 weekly flights to more than 75 destinations.
Passengers from the Nordics can connect via Hamad International Airport to a huge network of destinations, including 30 points across Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
