A Qatar Airways’ Boeing 777-300ER has landed at Belfast International Airport in the last few minutes with around 400 new and returning chinese students attending Queen’s University Belfast.
The price of a ticket for each student is understood to be approx. £939.
All of the students who travelled on the flight were tested for Covid-19 before their departure.
During the flight, students were provided with the airline’s health kits, including gloves, wet tissues, hand sanitiser, and masks.
UK Border Control will now check student visas and other necessary documents as required for entering the UK. Students will be received at Belfast International Airport by University staff and will be transported directly to University accommodation as part of the Queen’s Charter Flight package.
