Suspension of Qatar Airways service between Doha and Asmara

Due to operational requirements, Qatar Airways will be suspending flights between Doha and Asmara starting from 4 December 2016 until further notice. Our last flight QR1444 will depart from Asmara on 3 December 2016.


Our priority is of course our customers and we are ensuring that you are provided with additional support during this time and accommodated on the most convenient alternative journey.


As such we are taking the following commercial measures:
Our office in Asmara will remain open until 28 February 2017 and we will be happy to provide any support required.



  • If you have booked on Qatar Airways for travel prior to 3 December 2016, you will not be affected and your journey remains as planned.
  • If you have booked on Qatar Airways with inbound or outbound flights after 3 December we will be in contact with you to explore alternative travel options.


Accordingly you will be given options to:

  • Rebook on to any of our select partner airlines to original origin/destination with no additional charges.*
  • Full refund for any unused cancelled tickets.*

* Terms and conditions apply.


We are very grateful for all of the support provided to Qatar Airways and count on your continued support and cooperation during this transition period.


Importantly, we would like to extend our sincere apologies to the members affected by this situation. We value your choice to travel with Qatar Airways and we hope that we will be able to welcome you on board again soon.
