Qatar Airways Takes Further Steps in COVID-19 Response
Qatar Airways has taken further steps in response to COVID-19 including amending flight schedule, operating evacuation flights, introducing new health and safety policies, and maintaining its vital cargo operations.
In addition, the airline continues to support Qatar’s efforts to manage the coronavirus outbreak with the acquisition and delivery of 500,000 test kits for distribution to local health services.
Qatar Airways continues to temporarily hold flights to severely affected countries due to entry restrictions implemented by many governments to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The airline will place a temporary hold on flights to New York JFK from 1 April 2020, Madrid Barajas Airport from 4 April, and Barcelona El Prat Airport from 5 April.
At the same time, Qatar Airways is working with governments around the world to maintain a strong schedule of flights, and organising charter flights where needed.
Qatar Airways is also offering maximum flexibility to passengers in terms of managing their travel plans.
Passengers that have booked or planning to book tickets for travel up to 30 September 2020 can alter their travel date free of charge, exchange their ticket for a future travel voucher valid for one year or get a refund.
