Kathmandu: Qatar Airways’ resumption of four-weekly flights to Atlanta on June 1 marks the full return of the airline’s pre-pandemic US network increasing its gateways to 12, two more than it operated before Covid-19.

The airline will also be increasing frequencies to Boston, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Seattle offering more flexible travel options for its passengers with more than 85 weekly flights across the United States.

These increased services will provide enhanced connectivity to several of the airline’s global leisure destinations including Cape Town, Maldives, Seychelles and Zanzibar, along with other key traffic flows in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, the airline said in a media release.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic, Qatar Airways has remained committed to its passengers and trade partners in the United States, maintaining continuous services while rebuilding its U.S. network and launching two new destinations – San Francisco and Seattle. We have also strengthened our presence in the U.S. through strategic partnerships with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and JetBlue that have enabled us to connect to more points in the United States than any other airline, providing U.S. travelers the most convenient way to travel internationally this summer.”
