What Does the Aviation Sector have in Store?

The aviation industry, as we all know has been largely impacted by the pandemic. Indeed, it has been a very difficult year for all of us but we are gradually paving our path through it. At Qatar Airways, we are proud to be the largest international airline to have continued operations to help take passengers home - all necessary measures were taken to ensure safety is in place, and we are continuously updating all safety measures for a comfortable and safe travel experience. 

That said, with the easing of lockdown restrictions and introduction to air bubbles/travel arrangements, it gives us hope that all airlines will get back to the skies soon enough. The aviation industry has responded to the resumption of travel with resilience and vigilance. Safety has always been our number one priority, and especially now, it’s all the more vital. Safety and health continue to be at the core of all travel decisions by travellers, and at Qatar Airways, all our initiatives are aimed at addressing the obvious apprehensions around a time such as this. 

All our flights have an enhanced safety protocol for both passengers and cabin crew that includes requiring face shields and facemasks be worn by all passengers and additionally protective gowns for our cabin crew. Our crew are thermally screened before the departure of flights and after their arrival, are quarantined and tested if any colleagues or passengers on a flight show any symptoms of infection or test positive for the virus. Large bottles of hand sanitisers are placed in the galleys and made available for both cabin crew and passengers. We apply the highest standards of cleanliness on board with our aircraft thoroughly disinfected and equipped with industrial-size HEPA filters that remove 99.97% of viral and bacterial contaminates for re-circulated air, and thermal screening of our crew.
