We are thankful to the Omani authorities and the management and staff at Muscat International Airport for their support in making these charter flights to Muscat possible,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al Baker said.“We continue to operate around 130 daily flights to more than 60 cities worldwide. Each day new entry restrictions are put in place that prevent us from operating our regular scheduled flights. However, we continue to work closely with governments around the world, and wherever possible we will reinstate or operate charter flights,” he added.Qatar Airways has already helped to repatriate Pakistani, Filipino, Indian, Swiss, American, British, Canadian and French citizens as charters were organised by their respective governments so that their citizens can return home to their families at this difficult time.The airline is also offering maximum flexibility to passengers in terms of managing their travel plans. Passengers that have booked and are planning to book tickets for travel up to September 30 can alter their travel date free of charge, or exchange their ticket for a future travel voucher valid for one year, up to three days prior to departure.
