The Qatar Airways has been focusing on maintaining flights to over 30 destinations where possible, helping repatriate over one million people and transporting more than 100,000 tonnes of essential medical and aid supplies.

"Throughout this crisis our passengers have been at the centre of our focus," says Akbar Al Baker, the airline's chief executive. "As we follow the indicators of the global travel market on a daily basis, we continue to focus on our mission -- how we can enable mobility for our customers and provide them with seamless connectivity to their final destination," CNN quoted Al Baker as saying in a report.

The airline says it is planning to grow its network back to over 50 destinations by the end of May, including resumption of services to Manila, Amman and Nairobi.

And by the end of June, Qatar Airways aims to serve 80 destinations, including 23 in Europe, four in the Americas, 20 in the Middle East/Africa and 33 in Asia-Pacific.
