“Since the onset of the pandemic Qatar Airways network has never fallen below 30 destinations with continuous services to five continents.

Our airline has lead the industry in offering passengers more choices and greater flexibility so they can plan and book travel with confidence.

We have also implemented the most advanced safety and hygiene measures onboard including becoming the first airline to require passengers to wear face shields in addition to face coverings.

“With our investment in one of the youngest, most fuel-efficient long haul fleets, strategic network management and the Best Airport in the Middle East, we have been able to quickly and effectively rebuild our network to more than 550 weekly flights to over 85 destinations across six continents. As the global recovery continues, Qatar Airways will remain focused on its fundamental mission of carrying passengers across the globe safely and reliably.”
