Qatar Airways announced the launch of its flights to Cebu in the Philippines, in addition to resuming flights to Guangzhou in China.
“We are delighted to announce the launch of our direct flights to Cebu City, and to enable our travelers to visit a new destination in the Philippines,” said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways Group.
He added: Qatar Airways is one of the few airlines that continued to fly and fly through the air during this crisis, which gave us the opportunity to return travelers to their countries by helping more than two million passengers to return to their families and loved ones since last February.
Al Baker announced the launch of Qatar Airways flights to the Chinese city of Guangzhou, “in an important step that confirms our great confidence in the gradual return of the regional and global travel market.”
Al-Baker said: “A large number of non-scheduled flights were transported to transport goods to China, whether on air cargo planes or on passenger aircraft that were used to transport goods only, in order to meet the high demand for import and export to and from China.”
