Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker is confident that they have the advantage in gearing up the service, having been one of the only carriers to operate globally in recent months – helping to take over 1 million people home.
He added ” As we follow the indicators of the global travel market on a daily basis, we continue to focus on our mission how we can enable mobility for our customers and provide them with seamless connectivity to their final
destination. We have built a strong level of trust with passengers, governments, trade and airports as a reliable partner during this crisis and we intend to continue delivering on this mission as we gradually
expand our network.”
