Qatar Airways maintains ‘flexible, agile network’ amid Coronavirus challenges

Qatar Airways has maintained a flexible and agile network since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic although Covid-19 lockdowns have led to an almost complete standstill in airline travel worldwide.

The national airline helped bring over 1mn people home through its Doha hub and transport more than 100,000 tonnes of essential medical and aid supplies to where they are needed.

The airline maintained flights to at least 30 destinations where possible during the crisis even as it is beginning a phased approach to expanding its network in line with passenger demand evolution and the expected relaxation of entry restrictions around the world.

During the last five months, the national airline has seen many achievements including the commencement of the first stage of the strategic partnership with American Airlines as well as a deal in April with Standard Chartered for a $850mn financing in respect of seven Boeing 787-9 aircraft. - Gulf Times Reported. 

Qatar Airways plans summer flights to over 80 destinations worldwide starting June

Qatar Airways said on Twitter on Tuesday that it planned to fly a summer schedule to over 80 destinations worldwide.

The national carrier has been one of the few airlines to continue to operate with regular, scheduled flights during the lockdowns across the world to curb the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).

The multi-award winning airline has been maintaining services to about 30 destinations.

 

According to its previous announcement, it would start resuming flights to destinations it had suspended due to Covid-19 outbreak and that it aimed to fly to up to 80 destinations by June.
