June 06, 2020: Starting July 15, Qatar Airways is planning to resume services to Venice, Italy. The popular tourist destination and major arts and cultural centre will become the airline’s third destination in Italy to resume flights.

The national carrier of the State of Qatar will also increase flights to Dublin, Milan and Rome, with daily services starting from June 13. The airline expects these additional flights to provide further seamless connectivity via Hamad International Airport, with its Asia-Pacific destinations, particularly Australia where the airline continues to operate 21 weekly flights to Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.

Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker said, “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. During this crisis, we have become the largest carrier flying over 50 million kilometres to repatriate over 1.8 million passengers on over 15,000 flights.”

Qatar Airways three-weekly flights to Venice will be operated by its state-of-the-art B787 Dreamliner.
