Qatar Airways (QA) on Monday resumed flights to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia with a daily service.
In a statement, Qatar Airways said the first flight — QR1164 — from Hamad International Airport to King Khalid International Airport took off from Doha at 13:45 local time and landed safely at its destination at 15:10. The flight was operated by Qatar Airways’ Airbus A350-1000.
Later this week, Qatar Airways will resume flights to Jeddah on Thursday, January 14, (QR1188 departing DOH at 18:50) and to Dammam on Saturday, January 16 (QR 1150 departing Doha at 17:10).
The airline said passengers from Saudi Arabia can once again enjoy the award-winning Qsuite, featuring sliding privacy doors and the option to use a ‘Do Not Disturb (DND)’ indicator. The Qsuite seat layout is a 1-2-1 configuration, providing passengers with one of the most spacious, fully private, comfortable, and socially distanced products in the sky.
The national carrier continues to rebuild its network, which currently stands at over 110 destinations with plans to increase to over 125 by the end of March 2021.
A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ by the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by Skytrax. It is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted ‘Skytrax Airline of the Year’ title five times.
