by James Wilkinson

Qatar Airways is ramping up its global schedule, with the Doha-based carrier set to operate over 1,200 weekly flights to more than 140 destinations by the middle of 2021.

The move will see Qatar Airways operate to 43 destinations in Asia-Pacific, 23 in Africa, 14 in the Americas, 43 in Europe and 19 in Middle East.

“We are proud to lead the recovery of international aviation, implementing the highest standards of bio-safety and hygiene and investing in the latest innovations to simplify travel and restore passenger confidence during the most challenging period in aviation’s history,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

“Having never stopped flying throughout the pandemic, we have used our unrivalled experience and modern, fuel-efficient fleet to operate a sustainable and reliable network our passengers, trade partners and corporate customers can rely on.

“We also continue to offer the largest international network, including launching seven new destinations, to provide the connectivity our passengers and cargo customers need.

“As the global vaccine rollout begins to gather pace, we look forward to a gradual easing of entry restrictions throughout 2021 and welcoming back our millions of passengers on board the World’s Best Airline.”

Qatar Airways currently offers more flights to international destinations than any other airline and many cities will be served with a strong schedule with daily or more frequencies.
