Qatar Airways announced today that all three flights organised by the airline last night to bring passengers from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to Qatar have successfully reached Doha. All passengers arrived safely home in Qatar yesterday via Muscat.
The flights, chartered on Oman Air, departed King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah at 16:00, 22:00 and 23:00 local (KSA) time on Tuesday and landed in Muscat. A connecting Qatar Airways flight then transported the passengers from Muscat onward to Doha.
The airline has organised an additional flight with Kuwait Airlines on Wednesday to transport remaining passengers in KSA to Doha via Kuwait. The flight will depart at 19:15 local (KSA) time on Wednesday. Qatar Airways asks all passengers to report to the airport three hours before the flight.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Qatar Airways has worked tirelessly to ensure that all passengers were brought home safely to Doha within 24 hours of the flight cancellations. We have provided additional crew on the ground to ensure that all passengers are being cared for. Our global operations are continuing to run smoothly and remain unaffected. Our focus is on supporting our passengers and ensuring that we continue to deliver our award-winning service. As far as we are concerned, it is business as usual.”
The airline said it is supporting its staff affected by the situation in KSA, the UAE, the Kingdom of Bahrain and Egypt.
All passengers booked on affected flights will be provided with alternative options, including the option of a full refund on any unused tickets and free rebooking to the nearest alternative Qatar Airways network destination.
