The Chief Executive of the Qatar Airways Group, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we continue to invest in our fleet, operating the youngest, most fuel-efficient and technologically advanced aircraft. strategic investment in sustainable twin-engine aircraft has enabled us to continue flying during the most challenging year in aviation history, helping to bring home more than 3.1 million people since the start of the pandemic. As global travel recovers, our passengers can count on us for greener and smarter flights, and with more flights to more destinations through the Best Airport in the Middle East, Hamad International Airport”.
Environmentally conscious passengers can travel with the guarantee that Qatar Airways continuously monitors the market in order to assess demand, both for passengers and cargo, to ensure that it operates most efficient aircraft on each route.
