QA announces winter schedule, plans to expand network to 124 destinations by year-end
Qatar Airways (QA) has played a significant role in the global aviation industry since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The airline has safely taken home more than 2.3 million passengers on over 35,000 flights in the last couple of months.
Leading the industry in these testing times, the airline’s tireless efforts established it as the carrier that airline passengers, governments and industry partners can rely on.
Having become the largest international carrier during this crisis, QA has utilized its knowledge of the latest airport and national procedures, global passenger flows and booking trends to introduce a reliable winter schedule.
With travel and entry restrictions easing around the world, QA announced yesterday its winter schedule in line with passenger and cargo demand.
QA Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are proud to be the global airline passengers trust to take them where they want to go safely and reliably. This trust begins by offering an honest schedule of flights that is realistic of the current market conditions and entry restrictions around the world.”
“Also we ensure when entry restrictions change forcing us to postpone or cancel flights, we support our passengers with the most flexible and generous options to reschedule their plans,” he added.
Al Baker further noted, “While no airline can predict with 100 percent certainty how the market will recover or future entry restrictions, our unrivaled experience accumulated by becoming the largest international carrier during this crisis uniquely positions us to build a realistic schedule of flights with confidence.”
QA has been focusing on rebuilding its network and is now planning to expand to 124 destinations by the end of 2020.
These would include 21 destinations in Africa, 10 in the Americas, 42 in Asia-Pacific, 38 in Europe, and 13 in the Middle East.
Many cities will be served with a strong schedule with daily or more frequencies.

Since the start of the pandemic, QA has implemented a series of measures to ensure the safety of its passengers and staff.
Recently, the airline announced that it has become the first global carrier to operate Honeywell’s Ultraviolet (UV) Cabin System. UV light is capable of inactivating various viruses and bacteria when properly applied.
Approximately the size of a beverage cart, the Honeywell UV Cabin System, which is operated by Qatar Aviation Services (QAS), has extendable UV arms that treat aircraft seats, surfaces, and cabins without using cleaning chemicals.
