Qatar Airways to resume flights to Phuket, Thailand from July 1

By QLNews

Qatar Airways is all set to resume four weekly flights to the famed holiday destination, Phuket- Thailand, from July 1.

The airline will operate a total of 16 weekly flights to Thailand, providing seamless connectivity for its passengers travelling from Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

As Thailand reopens to holidaymakers from around the world, fully vaccinated travellers will soon be able to visit once again whilst also enjoying the award-winning hospitality and service available on Qatar Airways and at its hub, Hamad International Airport, the first and only 5-Star COVID-19 Safety Rated Airport in the Middle East.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr Akbar Al Baker said, “With the resumption of flights to Phuket, Qatar Airways marks a significant milestone in the recovery of international tourism. We are proud to have lead the industry, setting the benchmark for safety, innovation and customer service throughout the pandemic.

We know many of our customers are eager to get back flying and return to some of their favourite holiday destinations, such as Phuket. Famed for its many exotic beaches, family-friendly atmosphere, turquoise waters and delicious local cuisine, Phuket is an ideal destination for a summer getaway. We look forward to working with our partners in Thailand to support the recovery of their tourism sector.”

Launched in 2010, Phuket became Qatar Airways’ 93rd destination at the time.

The resort destination is a magnet for holidaymakers, particularly from Europe, the Middle East and the United States.

The route will be served by the airline’s modern and sustainable Boeing 787 Dreamliner with seating for 22 passengers in Business Class and 232 in Economy Class.

Qatar Airways has been recently acknowledged for its performance during the global pandemic as the best airline in the world by eDreams, one of Europe’s largest online travel agents.

The airline recently became the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by the international air transport rating organization, Skytrax.

These recognitions assure passengers across the world that airline health and safety standards are subject to the highest possible standards of professional, independent scrutiny and assessment.

The national carrier of Qatar continues to rebuild its network, which currently stands at over 130 destinations with plans to increase to more than 1,200 weekly flights to over 140 destinations by end of July 2021.
