Qatar Airways has helped thousands of Germans reach home from different countries amid the worldwide flight cancellations and travel restrictions enforced after the novel coronavirus outbreak.
"While the government has restricted entry in Germany since March 18, the airline continued to operate flights for German nationals and their family members, as well as other nationals residing in Germany," the airline said in a statement recently.
These flights include triple daily service to Frankfurt and daily service to Munich.
The move was discussed in a meeting between Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al-Baker and German Ambassador to Doha Hans-Udo Muzel.
Muzel expressed his gratitude to Qatar Airways for flying thousands of Germans from all over Asia to their homes in Germany at this crucial time, in spite of the challenges faced in the aviation industry posed by the global pandemic, flight cancellations and various airport closures, the statement added.
Qatar Airways recently launched a new commercial policy to allow all passengers the flexibility to alter travel plans up to three days prior to departure for flights booked till September 30.
This flexibility enables passengers to change their travel plans free of charge by altering the dates of their booking or exchanging their ticket for a travel voucher valid for one year.
