New independent data from OAG reaffirms Qatar Airways as the world’s largest airline in terms of seat availability per kilometer (ASK), offering more global connectivity to its passengers than any other airline.
Qatar Airways’ expansion network with more than 1,000 weekly flights to more than 130 destinations, provided more than 2.6 billion ASK during March 2021, providing the largest number of flights to international destinations.
The global pandemic of COVID-19 created unprecedented challenges for the aviation industry, but despite this, Qatar Airways never ceased operations and actively worked to get people home safely and reliably during the crisis. The airline has also added seven new destinations in the past 12 months, including San Francisco and Seattle in the US, Abuja, Accra and Luanda, in Africa, and Brisbane and Cebu, in Asia-Pacific.
Qatar Airways recently became the first airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star safety rating COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by the international air transport rating organization, Skytrax. This follows HIA’s recent success as the first airport in the Middle East and Asia to receive the 5 Star Skytrax COVID-19 airport security rating.
These recognitions assure passengers around the world that the health and safety standards of airlines are subject to the highest standards of professional and independent scrutiny and assessment.

Qatar Airways’ ability to continue flying during the pandemic and make a strong recovery is due to its strategic investment in modern and fuel efficient aircraft, which has enabled it to offer the right passenger and cargo capacity in each market. The airline’s fleet of 53 Airbus A350 and 37 Boeing 787 is the ideal choice for the current market conditions, allowing you to rebuild your network in a sustainable, commercial and environmental way.
