Qatar Airways continues to expand its network as travel restrictions around the world ease gradually. The multiple awardwinning airline has increased its flight frequency to Athens.
From earlier three weekly flights, the airline is now offering daily service to the capital, which is also the largest city in Greece. “We’ve increased our operations to Athens, offering a daily service from today. A beautiful city steeped in history, and a gateway to some of the finest Greek islands,” said Qatar Airways on its official twitter account.
The national carrier of the State of Qatar has also announced that it would resume its services to Beirut from next month.
“The popular tourist destination and major arts and cultural centre, Beirut, is re-joining our network with daily flights starting 1 July,” said the airline on its twitter account.
Over the past few weeks Qatar Airways has expanded its network that has enabled it to maintain its position as the largest international carrier in the world.
With over 1.3 billion revenue passenger kilometres (RPK) during the month of April, the share of the airline accounted for 17.8 percent of the global market which is over triple its nearest competitor.
“Qatar Airways maintains its position as the largest international airline in the world with over 270 weekly flights to more than 45 destinations,” said the airline in a tweet. The airline is smoothly moving ahead on its earlier announced decision to gradually expand its network.
Last month, the multiple award-winning airline had announced that it would expand its network in phased manner. With easing of entry restrictions 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 1.8 million people safely and reliably during this crisis including many left stranded by other airlines.
The airline 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 airlines that have fully grounded their operations. 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 suits for cabin crew.
