Qatar Airways ramps up flight frequencies to Pakistan
Qatar Airways has ramped up its services to Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar. The airline now operates 49 weekly flights to four gateways in Pakistan with its Boeing 787 and A350 aircraft.
Flights to Islamabad have increased from 11 to 14 weekly flights, to Karachi from 10 to 14 weekly flights, to Lahore from 11 to 14 weekly flights, and to Peshawar from five to seven weekly flights. The airline has effectively increased its flights to Pakistan by 32 percent so that they are now in line with operation levels before the Covid-19 crisis started.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are excited to increase our services to Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar, offering our passengers travelling to and from Pakistan connectivity to the largest networks in Europe, UK and the US via the Best Airport in the Middle East.
“We remain committed to serving our customers in Pakistan and have worked hard throughout the pandemic to ensure we can operate as many flights as possible, in line with the directions of the Pakistan government. From operating special charter services to a number of commercial flights, we are delighted to now offer a strong schedule of services.”
Qatar Airways now offers over 500 weekly flights to over 80 destinations worldwide from its hub, Hamad International Airport. It is operating regular flights to key gateways in Canada, Europe, South East Asia and the US. On 12 August, the airline will resume services to Houston and Philadelphia, adding to its regular flights to Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and New York.
Over the past several months, Qatar Airways has led the industry by maintaining a global network that never fell below 30 destinations. In doing so, the airline collected unrivalled experience in carrying passengers safely and reliably and became uniquely positioned to effectively rebuild its network. The carrier has stringently implemented the most advanced safety and hygiene measures on board its aircraft and at HIA – from introducing enhanced PPE suits for cabin crew, to becoming the first airline to require passengers to wear face shields in addition to face coverings.
