Qatar Airways continues to maintain its position as the largest international carrier in the world.

Qatar Airways global network has increased to more than 270 weekly flights to 45 plus destinations, with the national carrier continuing to maintain its position as the largest international carrier in the world.

The airline’s gradual rebuilding of its network continues with flights resuming in the past week to the following destinations:

Budapest (three weekly flights started June 15), Dar es Salaam (three weekly flights started June 16), Dhaka (three weekly flights started June 15), Istanbul (daily flights started June 13), New York (flights started June 19, daily from June 22 and 10 weekly from July 2).

As entry restrictions ease around the world, the carrier is also seeing a rise in bookings due to the strong levels of trust built with passengers as it took home over 1.8mn people safely and reliably during this crisis including many left stranded by other airlines.

With demand steadily rising, Qatar Airways has increased frequencies to the following destinations in the past week: Athens (increased from three weekly to daily flights), Dallas-Fort Worth (increased from three weekly to daily flights), Dublin (increased from five weekly to daily flights), Islamabad (now operating double daily flights), Jakarta (increased from four weekly to daily flights), Karachi (now operating double daily flights),

Lahore (now operating double daily flights), Milan (increased from five weekly to daily flights), Rome (increased from six weekly to daily flights), and Singapore (increasing from three weekly to daily flights).

Qatar’s national carrier also continues to operate daily flights to many key global destinations including Amsterdam, London Heathrow, Melbourne, Seoul, Sydney, Tokyo and Zurich offering a resilient network that is designed for strong connectivity.

Qatar Airways has led the industry during these challenging times accumulating unrivalled experience in carrying passengers safely and reliably, especially in comparison to those airlines that have fully grounded their operations. The airline continues to provide an honest network that can be relied upon and trusted to operate.

By maintaining a global network that never fell below 30 destinations, Qatar Airways has remained up to date with the latest in international airport procedures and implemented the most advanced safety and hygiene measures on board its aircraft and in Hamad International Airport (HIA), recently voted the Best Airport in the Middle East for the sixth year in a row.

The airline has also extended its booking policies to offer even more choice to its passengers. The airline will allow 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 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. For full terms and conditions visit

Qatar Airways has further enhanced its onboard safety measures for passengers and cabin crew. The airline has implemented several changes, including the introduction of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits for cabin crew while onboard, as well as a modified service that reduces interactions between the passengers and the crew inflight. Passengers will also be required to wear face coverings inflight, with the carrier recommending travellers bring their own for fit and comfort purposes.

Hamad International Airport has implemented stringent cleaning procedures and applied social distancing measures throughout its terminals. All passenger touchpoints are sanitised every 10-15 minutes and every boarding gate and bus gate counter is cleaned after each flight. In addition, hand sanitisers are provided at immigration and security screening points.
