Airlines across the globe are slowly rebuilding their route networks following up to six months of flight suspensions in some cases. For example, just this morning, Simple Flying reported that next week, IAG’s LEVEL would return to flying between Barcelona and New York. However, one airline that never stopped flying was Qatar Airways.

The most global connectivity

Qatar Airways today revealed that it has more global connectivity than any other airline. The carrier is rapidly resuming services as it aims to keep the world moving while other airlines remain grounded. Indeed, by mid-September, Qatar plans to operate over 650 flights each week to more than 65 destinations. With the option to change in Doha, many possible route combinations are available.
