Qatar Airways Still Operating Over 150 Flights Amid Global Air Travel Restrictions Due To Coronavirus

The global aviation industry has come to a near standstill because of the coronavirus outbreak. Across the world, as borders have been tightened and air travel has been banned, major airlines have been forced to suspend nearly all their operations. As a result, jobs have been lost and severe losses have been recorded. However, despite such dire circumstances, Qatar Airways continues to operate over 150 flights per day.

The airline wants to ensure stranded individuals can return home to safety 

Due to the sudden halting of travel, many people are stranded across the world. Qatar Airways, in their statement, explains that the reason they have continued to operate a significant number of flights is to allow people to get home safely to their loved ones. The official statement says: “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.”

The airline is constantly reviewing its operations to understand the demands and requests and may also continue adding more flights or bigger aircraft. The statement continued:  “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.”
