Passengers that have spent the last 14 days in Hong Kong can now travel to the United Kingdom quarantine-free* when they fly with Qatar Airways. As one of the countries on the United Kingdom COVID-19 travel corridors, passengers travelling via Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar are not required to undergo the mandatory 14-days self-isolation restriction. In conjunction with the quarantine-free measures, the airline is offering exclusive fares for travellers to the United Kingdom, happening from now to 13 December 2020.

Mr Thomas Scruby, Vice President, Pacific, Qatar Airways said: “Qatar Airways has continuously shown to be a reliable and responsible airline during this pandemic. Our continued operation has enabled us to gain the trust of our passengers and accumulated unrivalled experience of how to safely carry passengers during this time. 

With the inclusion of Hong Kong and Qatar into the United Kingdom COVID-19 travel corridors, Qatar Airways is rolling out these special fares to unite more family and friends, as well as provide flexible travel options to passengers who wish to start travelling again.” 

Additionally, students can also enjoy the latest offers and exclusive benefits such as fare discounts and extra baggage allowance as they travel for their studies, return to school or visit friends and family during the holidays when they join Qatar Airways' newly launched Student Club. For more information, please visit qatarairways.com/StudentClub. 

To ensure that passengers can plan their travels with peace of mind, Qatar Airways has extended its booking policies to offer even more choice and allowing passengers unlimited date changes. Passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 500 miles of the original destination. 

The airline 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 issuance. For full terms and conditions, visit qatarairways.com/RelyOnUs. 

A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was named ‘World’s Best Airline’ by the 2019 World Airline Awards, managed by Skytrax. It was also named ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, ‘World’s Best Business Class’, and 'Best Business Class Seat', in recognition of its ground-breaking Business Class experience, Qsuite. 

It is the only airline to have been awarded the coveted ‘Skytrax Airline of the Year’ title, which is recognised as the pinnacle of excellence in the airline industry, five times. In addition to offering excellent service for passengers, Qatar Airways is also focused on the sustainability of its operations. The airline’s variety of modern, fuel-efficient aircraft - particularly its fleet of 52 Airbus A350s and 30 Boeing 787s – reduces its carbon dioxide emissions. 

Due to COVID-19’s impact on travel demand, the airline has grounded its fleet of Airbus A380s as it is not environmentally justifiable to operate such a large aircraft in the current market. Qatar Airways has also recently launched a new programme that enables passengers to voluntarily offset the carbon emissions associated with their journey at the point of booking.
