Qatar Airways Keeps the Skies Open

March 25, 2020

Qatar Airways says it is is continuing to keeping the skies open and getting as many people home as they possibly can in these challenging times.

"Our state-of-the-art aircraft with their advanced air filter systems, combined with strict bio-security screening of our staff mean that we can continue operating a significant number of flights to reunite stranded passengers with their loved ones," their press statement points out.

The latest measures introduced at the airline include 10,000 extra seats added to its network; the provision of charter services to Europe and the US from Asia; the addition of extra flights to Paris, Perth and Dublin from Doha and upgrading services to Frankfurt, London Heathrow and Perth with the addition of the Airbus A380 on those routes.

“Figures for the last seven days show load factors of over 80% for flights to the UK, France and Germany, with a fall to 36% for outbound services from those countries, illustrating the demand for homeward travel," the report adds.

Working with embassies around the world, the airline has operated one-off services from destinations such as Phnom Penh, Denpasar, Manila and Kuala Lumpur to Europe. More than 5,000 passengers were flown home by these services over the last week, a number that is expected to more than triple over the next week.
