Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, the airline has applied necessary health and safety measures onboard its flights, including in the preparation and serving of food. Business Class meals are served covered on a tray instead of a table set up, and a cutlery wrap is offered to passengers as an alternative to individual cutlery service, in an effort to minimise contact between crew and passengers. Qatar Airways has also introduced single-use menu cards and sealed refreshing wipes.

Economy Class meals and cutlery are served sealed as usual, and menu cards have been temporarily discontinued. All social areas onboard the aircraft have been closed adhering to the social distancing measures. For more information about Qatar Airways’ safety measures, visit
