Doha: Qatar Airways is operating over 150 flights every day to help its passengers reach their destination safely. In a statement issued yesterday, Qatar’s national airline said that it is operating services to over 70 cities worldwide.
“We appreciate this is a difficult time and that many people around the world are trying to find a way to get home. At Qatar Airways we continue to operate more than 150 flights per day so that as many people as possible can get home safely to their loved ones,” said Qatar Airways.
“As at 24 March, we are operating services to over 70 cities worldwide. We are constantly reviewing our operations to see where there is more demand and requests, and wherever possible we will add more flights or bigger aircraft. This is a challenging time for the aviation industry and we are thankful to airports and authorities and their staff around the world for their incredible efforts to help us get passengers home,” it added.
Qatar Airways has taken a series of steps to help travellers in challenging times. Last week, the airline announced that it would offer future travel voucher for passengers.
The passengers affected by changes in its services can opt for a future travel voucher that will be valid for one year from its issuance date. Qatar’s national airline had also said that it would allow its passengers to get refund or re-book their tickets to alternative dates or destinations without any charge.
Qatar Airways is also working closely with the World Health Organisation and local authorities worldwide to safeguard the health and safety of its employees and passengers. Its modern fleet is protected with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration systems, eliminating 99.97 percent of fine airborne particles from circulating air in cabins, greatly restricting the spread of airborne fungi, viruses and bacteria.
Even in these tough times, the airline is transporting goods to several countries. The multiple award-winning airline, through its freighter and passenger aircraft, is transporting commodities ranging from fresh food items to healthcare products to Qatar and countries around the world.
More than 320,000kg of general cargo, perishables, pharmaceuticals, courier and other products are flown on Qatar Airways flights every day.
