(21 Jan 2021) Qatar Airways has confirmed that it will resume flights to Atlanta on 1 June.
The airline will operate the route with four flights per week.
Qatar Airways will also add 13 weekly flights to operate a total of 83 weekly flights across its 12 gateways in the U.S.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “With the upcoming launch of Seattle and the resumption of Atlanta, we will reach 12 gateways in the U.S, two more than what we operated pre-COVID19. Our commitment to the U.S. market has also seen us add and expand strategic partnerships with American carriers, offering our passengers hundreds of additional flight connections with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and JetBlue.”
In line with the airline’s steady rebuild of its U.S. network, Qatar Airways plans to resume services and increase frequencies to several destinations:
Atlanta (four weekly flights starting 1 June)
Chicago (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 4 March)
Dallas-Fort Worth (increasing to 10 weekly flights from 2 March)
Houston (increasing to daily flights from 14 March)
Miami (increasing to thrice weekly flights from 3 July)
San Francisco (ramping up to daily flights by 2 July)
Seattle (four weekly flights starting 29 January and ramping up to daily flights by 1 July)
Seattle is the seventh new destination and the second in the U.S. to be added by Qatar Airways since the start of the pandemic. The launch of flights to Seattle and resumption of Atlanta will increase Qatar Airways’ U.S. network to 12 destinations in the U.S., connecting onwards to hundreds of American cities through strategic partnerships with Alaska Airlines, American Airlines and JetBlue.
Atlanta and Seattle join existing U.S. destinations including Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX) Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), Philadelphia (PHL), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington, D.C. (IAD).
