Qatar Airways has announced it will operate 39 weekly flights to six gateways in the US, connecting to hundreds of additional US cities through partnerships with American Airlines and JetBlue, the company said.
Qatar Airways is a Gulf carrier that kept taking people home to the US throughout the COVID-19 crisis, maintaining flights to Chicago and Dallas-Fort Worth.
Working closely with the Governments of Qatar and the US, the airline has helped take home over 160,000 passengers to the US since February on scheduled and charter flights.
With strong existing partnerships with American Airlines and JetBlue in place, the restarting of these flights brings benefits to Qatar Airways passengers. Existing services to Dallas-Forth Worth and Chicago currently enable passengers to book onward travel with American Airlines to almost 180 destinations on more than 350 domestic flights per day. This will increase to more than 600 daily flights with the addition of services to Boston, New York, Los Angeles and Washington Dulles. Qatar Airways´ New York flights and five-weekly Boston flights will also facilitate the resumption of the JetBlue codeshare. Passengers will immediately be able to book travel across the entire JetBlue network on 70 flights per day to 46 destinations.
