Qatar Airways Charters Additional Two Special Flights from Tbilisi Airport

Airline Qatar Airways is pleased to announce it will be operating two special flights from Tbilisi to its award-winning hub in Doha on 16 and 30 September. Due to the global pandemic and the restrictions in place, Tbilisi Airport remains closed; however, Qatar Airways has two special flights to honor the airline’s commitment to bringing people home. Passengers can travel via the Best Airport in the Middle East to over 85 destinations across the globe, including eight destinations in the US, among them Boston, Los Angeles and New York.

Qatar Airways Acting Vice President in the Middle East, Levant and Caucasus, Bennet Stephens, said: “We are delighted to offer two special flights from Tbilisi, offering Georgians once again an unparalleled service in the sky. Passengers from Georgia will be able to connect via the Best Airport in the Middle East, Hamad International Airport, to the largest and broadest network in the region, with over 650 weekly flights to more than 85 destinations across the globe. Qatar Airways has become the largest international carrier during this crisis, taking home over two million people and developing unrivalled experience in carrying passengers safely.”

Since the onset of the pandemic, Qatar Airways has worked closely with governments, airports and private companies to fulfil its mission of taking people home safely and reliably. While many airlines suspended operations during this crisis, Qatar Airways has continued to operate flights wherever possible. Throughout the pandemic, Qatar Airways’ network has never fallen below 30 destinations, with continuous services to five continents.

According to the latest IATA data, Qatar Airways has become the largest international carrier since April offering more global connectivity than any other airline to help take people home. This enabled the airline to accumulate unmatched experience in carrying passengers safely and reliably, and uniquely positioned the airline to effectively rebuild its network. The carrier has stringently implemented the most advanced safety and hygiene measures on board its aircraft and in Hamad International Airport (HIA).

Qatar Airways’ onboard safety measures for passengers and cabin crew include the provision of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for cabin crew and a complimentary protective kit and disposable face shields for passengers. Business Class passengers on aircraft equipped with Qsuite can enjoy the enhanced privacy this award-winning business seat provides, including sliding privacy partitions and the option to use a ‘Do Not Disturb (DND)’ indicator. Qsuite is available on flights to more than 30 destinations, including Guangzhou, Kuala Lumpur, London, Paris, and New York.

To ensure travellers can make plans with peace of mind, the airline has extended its booking policies to offer even more choice to its passengers. The airline will allow unlimited date changes, and passengers can change their destination as often as they need if it is within 5,000 miles of the original destination. The airline will not charge any fare differences for travel completed before 31 December 2020, after which fare rules will apply. All tickets booked for travel up to 31 December 2020 will be valid for two years from the date of issuance. For full terms and conditions visit

Qatar Airways’ home and hub, Hamad International Airport (HIA), has implemented stringent cleaning procedures and applied social distancing measures throughout its terminals. Passenger touchpoints are sanitized every 10-15 minutes and boarding gates and bus gate counters are cleaned after each flight. In addition, hand sanitizers are provided at immigration and security screening points. HIA was recently ranked “Third Best Airport in the World”, among 550 airports worldwide, by the SKYTRAX World Airport Awards 2020. HIA was also voted the ‘Best Airport in the Middle East’ for the sixth year in a row and ‘Best Staff Service in the Middle East’ for the fifth year in a row.
