Qatar Airways, through its super-connector hub in Doha, aims to have roughly 250 destinations by the end of this decade, up from around 160 today. The carrier’s original 2018 plan was to reach 250 destinations by 2022, but this was derailed by a global pandemic, delivery delays from Boeing and Airbus and the fall-out from a legal dispute with the latter.
“The real impediment for [reaching 250 destinations] at the time being to us is the delays in deliveries of a very large number of airplanes that we have on order,” said the carrier’s group CEO Akbar Al Baker at a September 15 press conference in Seattle, referring to both technical and legal realities facing the airline.
