Qatar Airways to launch flights to Philadelphia

Got a hankering for a Philly cheesesteak? Or just want to show your support for the Eagles in person? Well, you’re in luck, as Qatar Airways is set to launch direct flights to Philadelphia.

From September 15, the airline will fly to the city in Pennsylvania three times a week.

The move is part of plans to rebuild the carrier’s U.S. network following coronavirus restrictions.

Qatar Airways already flies to several destinations in the U.S., including Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Miami.

Making the announcement on Twitter, the airline said, “Bustling with history, we’re excited to start flying three-times weekly to #Philadelphia from 15 September. #QatarAirways is continuing the rapid rebuild of our US network with the addition of @PHLAirport. #GoingPlacesTogether.”

Last week, the airline resumed flights to Portugal and increased the number of flights to Pakistan.

Citizens and permanent residency holders have been allowed to travel in and out of the country since August 1.

Those returning from abroad must quarantine at home for a week.
