Qatar Airways has announced plans to operate over 1,200 weekly frequencies to over 140 destinations this summer.

The carrier has gradually rebuilt its network following the onset of Covid-19, reaching 120 destinations in January.

This will rise to over 140 by the peak of the summer 2021 season – for comparison Qatar Airways was flying to around 160 destinations in the peak season of 2019.

The airline says it will serve 23 destinations in Africa, 14 in the Americas, 43 in Asia-Pacific, 43 in Europe and 19 in Middle East this summer.

A full list of destinations set to be operational by the peak of the IATA summer 2021 season can be seen below. Exact schedules have not been given, but the carrier says that “Many cities will be served with a strong schedule with daily or more frequencies”.

Qatar Airways recently became the first airline in the Middle East to trial the IATA Travel Pass digital health passport app, enabling passengers to receive Covid-19 test results and verify they are eligible to undertake their journey through an ‘OK to Travel’ status.

Commenting on the news Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said:

“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.

“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.”
