Qatar Airways has announced the addition of its 12th gateway to the US with the resumption of four-week Atlanta flights starting on June 1.
The carrier will also significantly increase its frequency by adding an additional 13 weekly flights to operate a total of 83 weekly flights across its 12 gateways. Having become the largest international carrier in the early stages of the pandemic, the airline has applied its unrivalled knowledge of global passenger flows and booking trends to rebuild its global network and strengthen its position as the leading Middle East airline connecting the US with Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “ Having never stopped flying to the U.S. throughout the pandemic, we have steadily rebuilt our network, gradually resuming destinations and adding more frequencies. With the upcoming launch of Seattle and the resumption of Atlanta, we will reach 12 gateways in the U.S, two more than what we operated pre-COVID-19.
In line with the airline’s steady rebuild of its US network, Qatar Airways plans to resume services and increase frequencies to several destinations:
Atlanta (four weekly flights starting 1 June)
Chicago (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 4 March)
Dallas-Fort Worth (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 2 March)
Houston (increasing to daily flights from 14 March)
Miami (increasing to three weekly flights from 3 July)
San Francisco (ramping up to daily flights by 2 July)
Seattle (four weekly flights starting 29 January and ramping up to daily flights by 1 July)
Seattle is the seventh new destination and the second in the US to be added by Qatar Airways since the start of the pandemic.
