With the resumption of services to Amman, Entebbe, Hanoi, Seychelles, Windhoek and Yerevan and the launch of new flights to Accra, Qatar Airways’ global network will more than triple in size by mid-October.
The airline has, or will, resume/increase flights to the following destinations as follows: Amman (daily flights started 15 September, carriage of passengers limited to AMM-DOH only); Clark (increasing to nine weekly flights from 20 September); Copenhagen (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 15 October); Dhaka (increasing to seven weekly flights from 19 September); Entebbe (three weekly flights starting 2 October); Hanoi (four weekly flights starting 3 October); Madrid (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 1 October); Manchester (increasing to 17 weekly flights from 15 October); Manila (increasing to 17 weekly flights from 2 October); Seychelles (three weekly flights starting 15 October); Stockholm (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 15 October); Windhoek (three weekly flights starting 15 October); Yerevan (five weekly flights started 15 September, increasing to daily from 5 October).
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said: “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.”
“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 heartwarming to know our growing network will provide them an opportunity to travel home or take a trip to see loved ones.”
To ensure travellers can plan their travel with peace of mind, the airline allows unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 5,000 miles of the original destination. The airline says it will not charge any fare differences for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules will apply. All tickets booked for travel up to 31 December 2020 will be valid for two years from the date of issuance.http://www.ft.lk/travel-tourism/Qatar-Airways-network-to-expand-to-over-90-destinations/27-706539
