Qatar Airways, a Doha-based airline, is resuming its flights to many destinations in South Africa. Qatar has limited its flights due to the Corona epidemic. Qatar Airways confirmed there are scheduled daily flights to Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban, although the airline will operate 19 flights a week in those cities.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, several Middle East airlines have stopped their flights to African countries. Qatar Airways’ network has not ever plummeted beyond 30 destinations since the pandemic, with uninterrupted flights to five continents. Since then, the carrier has restored its network with more than 650 weekly flights to even more than 90 destinations throughout six continents, delivering travelers more convenient travel opportunities to even more destinations than any carrier.
