Qatar Airways resumes Lisbon route
Qatar Airways’ European network is resuming four weekly flights to Lisbon, Portugal starting 14 August, 2020. The resumption of Lisbon services will see the airline’s operations expand to 225 weekly flights to 33 gateways in Europe. The flights will be operated by the airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner offering 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are pleased to resume flights to Lisbon, further expanding our European network. Lisbon is renowned for its extensive history and culture, boasting a rich artistic and gastronomic heritage and we look forward to support the recovery of its tourism and trade industries. Passengers from Portugal can also look forward to connecting seamlessly and safely via the Best Airport in the Middle East to more than 30 destinations across Africa, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and South Asia.”
The airline’s network has never fallen below 30 destinations throughout the current crisis. By optimizing its mix of aircraft and grounding its A380 fleet, the airline continues to fly only the right sized aircraft on all routes to Europe, reducing its environmental impact by offering sensible and responsible capacity to meet both passenger and cargo demand. The airline’s fleet of 49 Airbus A350 and 30 Boeing 787 aircraft are deployed on important long-haul routes to the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions.
The carrier has stringently implemented the most advanced safety and hygiene measures on board its aircraft and in Hamad International Airport – 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.
