Qatar Airways To Resume Flights From Auckland Via Brisbane To The World

From 19 August, Qatar Airways will operate three-weekly frequencies from Auckland via Brisbane with connections to more than 35 destinations across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia.

From 19 August, Qatar Airways will operate three-weekly frequencies from Auckland via Brisbane with connections to more than 35 destinations across Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and South Asia.

Qatar Airways is resuming flights from Auckland with three-weekly frequencies starting from 19 August 2020.

The service will be operated via Brisbane utilising the airline’s state-of-the-art fuel-efficient Airbus A350-1000 offering 46 Qsuites in Business Class and 281 seats in Economy Class.

Services will initially only carry outbound passengers from Auckland, with inbound services to Auckland and services between Auckland and Brisbane to start in line with easing of entry restrictions.

“We are excited to resume services from Auckland, providing passengers from New Zealand seamless connectivity via the Best Airport in the Middle East to more destinations in Europe than any other airline,”

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

“We have worked closely with the Government of New Zealand and its embassies around the world during this crisis to help bring home safely over 13,000 passengers.”

“In these difficult times, customers are looking for an airline they can rely on and trust. Our unrivalled experience in carrying passengers safely and reliably continues to provide the assurance people need. As we resume our Auckland services we will continue delivering on this mission.” Said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

Go! Go! Cargo!

Qatar

New Zealand is also an important air cargo market for Qatar Airways. The three-weekly A350-1000 belly-hold flights to Auckland will provide 60 tonnes of cargo capacity every week, each way, offering exporters in the country access to a global market via Doha while providing businesses worldwide direct capacity to New Zealand.

Airline Update

Qatar Airways’ onboard safety measures for passengers and cabin crew include the provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for cabin crew and a complimentary protective kit and disposable face shields for passengers.

In addition, to ensure travellers can plan their travel with peace of mind, the airline has also extended its booking policies to offer even more choice to its passengers.

The airline will allow unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 5,000 miles of the original destination.

Qatar will not charge any fare differences for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules will apply.

All tickets booked for travel up to 31 December 2020 will be valid for two years from the date of issue.
