Qatar Airways will be the first international carrier to resume passenger service at PHL, operating four flights per week between Philadelphia and Doha beginning September 15.
“Qatar has been a great partner since joining PHL in 2014 and having the airline back at the airport is wonderful news for PHL, our passengers and our region,” said PHL CEO Chellie Cameron. “Qatar’s Philadelphia-Doha flights have been very popular for guests traveling for business, leisure and to visit family and loved ones, because the route provides direct access to two amazing cities and gateways to even more key destinations around the world.”
These are Qatar’s first scheduled flights to and from Philadelphia since March. When service resumes, PHL will become the eighth of Qatar’s 10 U.S. gateways in operation.
“Throughout the pandemic Qatar Airways has been a leader in the industry by maintaining a global network that never fell below 30 destinations,” said Eric Odone, Qatar Senior Vice President- Western Region. “We have worked closely with the U.S. government and airports to rebuild our network and become the largest international carrier in the U.S. We are excited for the resumption of four weekly flights to Philadelphia, and are thrilled to begin servicing this important U.S. market.”
