Dhaka: Qatar Airways has announced to operate daily flights to Canada from July 4.
The airline will operate three weekly flights to Toronto and four weekly flights to Montreal, from its hub at Doha.
The move comes as the airline tries to gradually rebuild its network following the worst crisis ever to impact the aviation industry.
Qatar Airways will be sending both the Boeing 777 and Airbus A350-900 to Canada. Both aircraft will operate on the four Montreal flights. Meanwhile, the A350-900 will exclusively serve the remaining three Toronto flights.
Qatar Airways never operated to fewer than 30 destinations, even at the height of the crisis. The airline’s essential network enabled many stranded passengers to continue to travel home, even when other airlines had grounded their fleets.
One of the routes kept open was the Montreal route. Since the pandemic began, Qatar Airways has repatriated over 16,000 Canadians from the Middle East and Asia, working in cooperation with the Government of Canada.
Commenting on the news, Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive, Qatar Airways, said, “Qatar Airways has never stopped operating to Canada throughout this crisis and we are pleased to be able to further strengthen our support to the people of Canada with the addition of these three weekly scheduled flights to Toronto.”
