Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, H E Akbar Al Baker said yesterday that Qatar Airways’ priority is to protect citizens and residents of Qatar. “Our first priority is protecting the population and the citizens of my country,” said H E Akbar Al Baker in a video posted on Qatar Airways twitter account, yesterday.
“We don’t want to be so desperate that we take risks, which could be a health hazard and could have a second peak in my country”.
“My country has been progressing very well. There is a huge reduction in the past couple of weeks – of nearly 84,000 in the infection rate,” H E Akbar Al Baker said.
“So what I would prefer to do- is not to jump the gun and start bringing people.
We need to make sure that whatever we do opening our country – that we do in a very wise and a very calculated manner so that all the people who live in my country, Qatar, are properly protected, before we open up,” he said.
