UAE: Qatar Airways increases flights while others stop flying

As flight bans multiply around the world, Qatar Airways has pledged to ‘clear the backlog’ of people wanting to get home from Asia, Africa and Australasia. Many countries have imposed flight bans that are closing down options almost by the hour. But Qatar has yet to close its airport, Doha, to flights. Having downsized operation a bit about a week ago, it is now upscaling by adding additional flights to some destinations and putting on bigger aircraft – for example its A380s are back in the sky now.
