Qatar Airways continues to lead the recovery of international travel, operating the world’s first fully COVID-19 vaccinated flight today.
The world's first fully COVID-19 vaccinated flight took to the skies on Tuesday (Apr 6), carrying only inoculated passengers and crew members on board.
Flight QR6421 was operated by the airline’s sustainable A350-1000 aircraft, and it is fully carbon offset.
The special flight showcases all the measures the airline has put in place to ensure the highest standards of safety and hygiene on board, including its latest innovation, the world’s first ‘Zero-Touch’ in-flight entertainment technology.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said the flight demonstrates that the “next stage” in the recovery of international travel is not far away.
“With aviation being a critical economic driver both globally and here in the State of Qatar, we are thankful for the support we have received from our government and local health authorities to vaccinate our staff, with over 1,000 vaccinations being administered per day,” he added.
