Qatar Airways to boost Belgrade flights


Qatar Airways has confirmed it will be adding an additional seven weekly flights between Doha and Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport over the next two months after the carrier resumed three weekly operations between the two cities yesterday following a four-month hiatus. In a statement, the carrier said it would serve the Serbian capital three times per week until July 27, after which flights will operate four times per week. From September 1, services will be ramped up to ten flights per week until the end of the 2020 summer season in late October. This will include a daily morning departure from Doha and an additional three weekly late afternoon departures from the Qatari capital, each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. As a result, the airline will outstrip in 2019 frequencies on the route from September. Qatar Airways’ CEO, Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are delighted to be back in Belgrade. During this crisis more passengers have chosen to fly with Qatar Airways than any other airline, and we appreciate the trust they have placed in us. We have become the largest global carrier flying over fifty million kilometres to repatriate over 1.8 million passengers on over 15.000 flights. This has enabled us to accumulate unrivalled experience of how to safely and reliably carry passengers during these uncertain times”.

Qatar Airways has increased its health and safety measures onboard by introducing new personal protective equipment for customers and cabin crew. The airline’s additional measures include offering face shields and protective kits to all passengers, in addition to a new protective gown for cabin crew. The disposable face shield will be available in two standard sizes - one for adults and the other for children. Passengers travelling from Doha will receive their face shields at the check-in counters, whereas at other destinations, the face shields will be distributed at the boarding gates. Economy class passengers are required to wear their face shield visor in addition to their face mask or covering throughout the flight, except when they are served their meals or drinks. Business class customers are asked to wear their face shield and mask onboard at their own discretion, as they enjoy more space and privacy. On board, all Qatar Airways passengers will be provided with a complimentary protective kit. Inside a ziplock pouch they will find a single-use surgical face mask, large disposable powder-free gloves and an alcohol-based hand sanitiser gel. Business class customers will also be offered an additional 75ml sanitiser gel tube. Qatar Airways has also introduced new disposable protective gowns for cabin crew that are fitted over their uniforms, in addition to safety glasses, gloves and a mask.

    Those night flights are absolutely needed for better connections.

    Given that yesterday the first charger took off (Skiathos) I'm sure Serbs are going to be traveling normally.

  4. Demand is growing step by step, it’s the perfect moment for Qatar to deploy their B787-8 to BEG instead of sending an evening departure on some days

      Tell us more, please. What makes you feel that it's too optimistic? Why do you have doubts when it comes to the booming Serbian market? Do share with us you thoughts, hopes and fears.

      Demand will not be enough for as many frequencies as last year, when the economies worldwide were thriving .
