Today (June 3, 2020), Qatar Airways announced that they will resume service to Venice starting July 15, 2020 with three weekly flights. The carrier will also increase frequencies on their Dublin, Milan and Rome routes to daily service from June 13, 2020. Qatar Airways is one of the few global airlines that has maintained a significant schedule throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic, giving the carrier deep insight into demand trends. The additional flights announced today will provide seamless connectivity to further destinations via the airline’s hub at the award-winning Hamad International Airport (DOH) in Doha. Qatar Airways’ guests can enjoy connections to the Asia-Pacific region from DOH, especially Australia, where the carrier continues to offer 21 weekly flights to Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. In Wednesday’s announcement, Qatar Airways Group Chis Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said in part,
“We are excited to resume services to Venice, one of the most iconic and popular tourist destinations in the world. Throughout this crisis, our focus has been on helping to take people home and transporting medical aid and essential supplies to impacted regions. The resumption of services to Venice is a major milestone not just for our airline but also for the global tourism industry, indicating the start of the gradual return of international leisure travel. We look forward to supporting the many businesses in Venice that rely on international tourism and expanding these flights as demand grows.”
The Doha (DOH) to Venice (VCE) flights will be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, departing Doha at 8:20 AM and arriving in Venice at 1:15 PM. The return flight departs Venice at 4:05 PM and arrives in Doha at 10:30 PM. The three weekly return flights will be operated with a state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner configured with 22 Business and 232 Economy Class seats. Qatar Airways has enhanced onboard safety measures for guests and crew including PPE suits for cabin crew (including masks and gloves) and a modified meal service designed to limit contact. Passengers are also required to wear face coverings inflight, and the carrier recommends travelers bring their own for personalized fit and comfort. Additionally, Qatar Airways now allows unlimited date changes for tickets (within 5,000 miles of the original destination) for travel completed before December 31, 2020, without any fare difference charges.
