Qatar Airways has reached the milestone of 100 destinations being served across its network, as it continues to rebuild following the onset of Covid-19.
The carrier will today (October 16) resume three times weekly flights to Sofia via Bucharest.
Several routes are also increasing in frequency this month, as follows:
- Copenhagen (increased to 10 weekly flights from October 12)
- Madrid (increased to 10 weekly flights from October 12)
- Manchester (increased to 17 weekly flights from October 12)
- Singapore (increasing to double daily flights from October 25)
- Stockholm (increased to 10 weekly flights from October 12)
The resumption of flights to Bucharest and Sofia means Qatar Airways is now offering over 700 weekly flights to 100 destinations.
Earlier this month the carrier outlined plans to operate flights to 124 destinations by the end of the year, a forecast that has now increased slightly with these latest announcements.
Commenting on the news Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar Al Baker, said:
“As one of the few airlines to have continuously flown throughout the pandemic to take passengers home safely and reliably, we are proud reach this significant milestone in the rebuild of our network.
“Our focus is not only on restarting destinations but also operating as many frequencies as possible to provide our passengers the flexibility to travel when they want.
“With more than 700 weekly frequencies currently, and plans to increase our network to more than 125 destinations by the end of 2020, our passengers will enjoy more options to travel when they want across the globe, safely and reliably.”
