Dar es Salaam will be the airline’s first destination in Africa to resume scheduled flights
Airline will operate three weekly flights with an Airbus A320
DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways is pleased to announce the airline will be resuming services to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania from 16 June 2020. The largest city in East Africa will be the airline’s first destination in Africa to resume scheduled services with three weekly flights operated by an Airbus A320 offering 12 flatbed seats in Business Class and 120 seats in Economy Class.
As one of the only global airlines to have maintained a significant schedule throughout this crisis, Qatar Airways is uniquely positioned to monitor trends in traffic flow and passenger bookings. The airline has scheduled these flights to connect seamlessly via its award-winning hub, Hamad International Airport, with key European destinations, including London, Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Madrid.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We are excited to resume scheduled flights to Dar es Salaam, one of the largest cities in Africa and a key trade and tourism hub in East Africa. During this crisis, we have become the largest global carrier flying over 50 million kilometres to repatriate over 1.5 million passengers on nearly 15,000 flights. This has enabled us to accumulate unrivalled experience of how to safely and reliably carry passengers during these uncertain times. Our wide network of flights during these challenging times has ensured we have kept up to date with the latest in international airport procedures and implemented the most advanced safety & hygiene measures on board our aircraft and in Hamad International Airport, recently voted the Best Airport in the Middle East for the sixth year in a row. We have been the airline passengers can rely on during this crisis and we will continue to ensure the safest and most reliable experience for our passengers as global travel resumes.”
Qatar Airways has further enhanced its onboard safety measures for passengers and cabin crew. The airline has implemented several changes, including the introduction of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) suits for cabin crew while onboard, as well as a modified service that reduces interactions between the passengers and the crew inflight. Cabin crew have already been wearing PPE during flights for a number of weeks, including gloves and face masks. Passengers will also be required to wear face coverings inflight, with the carrier recommending travellers bring their own for fit and comfort purposes.
To ensure travellers can plan their travel with peace of mind, the airline has extended its booking policies to offer even more choice to its passengers. The airline will allow unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 5,000 miles of the original destination. The airline will not charge any fare differences for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules will apply. All tickets booked for travel up to 31 December 2020 will be valid for two years from the date of issuance. For full terms and conditions visit www.qatarairways.com/RelyOnUs.
