Qatar Airways lays on repatriation flights


Qatar Airways will expand operations to Australia to help get many stranded people home. From March 29, the airline will provide a daily service to Brisbane, a double daily service to Perth, a double daily service to Melbourne and a triple daily service to Sydney.

“We are thankful to the Australian Government, airports and staff for their support in helping us to add additional flights, in particular, flights to Brisbane,” HE Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways Group has said.

“We continue to operate around 150 daily flights to more than 70 cities worldwide. Sometimes governments put in place restrictions that mean we simply cannot fly to a country. We are working closely with governments around the world, and wherever possible we will reinstate or add more flights.”
