Qatar Airways will resume flights gradually. 52 destinations in May / 80 destinations in June.
Qatar Airways is preparing to resume large-scale flights. But as we anticipate, this will happen in several stages. Everything will be in line with the relaxation of travel restrictions and government decisions. For starters, the focus will be on major destinations and partner hubs.
So far, Qatar Airways has managed to keep several flights active to 30 destinations, depending on requests and possibilities. And it intends to increase to 50 destinations by the end of May. It carried more than 1 million passengers to their homes. But also over 100 tons of medical equipment and essential aids in the fight against the new coronavirus.
Qatar Airways will resume flights gradually
Qatar Airways will take advantage of its diversified fleet and implement the right aircraft for each route, depending on market demand. By the end of June, the goal is to fly to 80 destinations around the world. Flights are estimated to 23 destinations in Europe, 4 in North and South America, 20 in the Middle East / Africa and 33 in Asia-Pacific. Many destinations will have daily flights and even more.
The gradual expansion will initially focus on strengthening the connections between the Doha airline hub and the global hubs of partner airlines around the world. Among the targeted hubs are: London, Chicago, Dallas and Hong Kong. To which are added business and leisure destinations such as Madrid and Mumbai.
