Qatar Airways has also operated special flights to new destinations such as Brisbane in Australia, Christchurch in New Zealand, and Toronto in Canada as the airline continues to operate 60 scheduled flights a day to around 40 destinations. It also works with state embassies, arranging chartered flights to repatriate stranded foreign nationals and citizens.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, H E Akbar Al Baker, said, "“The entire team at Qatar Airways has worked incredibly hard to take people home over the past few weeks. We have built a strong level of trust with our passengers, governments, travel trade and cargo businesses as a reliable partner when we were needed the most and we continue to offer a schedule where possible and allowed by governments."

Qatar Airways also maintains the highest possible hygiene standards, which include the regular disinfection of aircraft, the use of cleaning products recommended by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the World Health Organization (WHO), and thermal screening of the crew. In addition, Qatar Airways’ aircraft feature the most advanced air filtration systems, equipped with industrial-size HEPA filters that remove 99.97% of viral and bacterial contaminants from re-circulated air, providing the most effective protection against infection. All the airline’s onboard linen and blankets are washed, dried and pressed at microbial lethal temperatures, while its headsets are removed of ear foams and rigorously sanitized after each flight. These items are then sealed into individual packaging by staff wearing hygienic disposable gloves.
