Setting another record of sorts, Qatar Airways has taken to the skies, the world’s first fully Covid-19 vaccinated flight.
The QR 6421 flight departed from Hamad International Airport today carrying all vaccinated crew and passengers onboard. The crew demonstrated the highest standards of safety and hygiene on board to the passengers including the world’s first ‘Zero Touch’ inflight entertainment technology.
Qatar Airways operated the special service using the most technologically advanced and sustainable aircraft, Airbus A350-1000, which is part of the airline’s carbon offset environment sustainability program.
Commenting on the special flight, Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive of Qatar Airways Group said, “Today’s special flight demonstrates the next stage in the recovery of international travel is not far away. We are proud to continue leading the industry by operating the first flight with a fully vaccinated crew and passengers and providing a beacon of hope for the future of international aviation.
With aviation being a critical economic driver both globally and here in the State of Qatar, we are thankful for the support we have received from our government and local health authorities to vaccinate our staff, with over 1,000 vaccinations being administered per day.
“….. As the vaccine rollout begins to gather pace worldwide, Qatar Airways remains committed to being the airline passengers and travel partners can rely on, operating one of the largest global networks to provide the connectivity needed to reunite families and friends and support global trade.’’
Qatar Airways was the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star Covid-19 Airline Safety Rating by the international air transport rating organization, Skytrax. This follows HIA’s recent success as the first and only airport in the Middle East and Asia to be awarded a Skytrax 5-Star Covid-19 Airport Safety Rating. Qatar Airways is the first airline in the Middle East to begin trials of the innovative new IATA Travel Pass ‘Digital Passport’ mobile app.
