Qatar Airways at 20

Britain’s Red Arrows aerobatic team and members of the Qatar British Business Association were among the guests on Saturday for a celebration in Doha of Qatar Airways’ 20th anniversary.

Thousands watched as a Qatar Airbus A350, for which the airline was global launch customer, flew in formation with the RAF squadron at a special event hosted by British ambassador Ajay Sharma and Qatar Airways group chief executive Akbar Al Baker.

Al Baker, said: “It has been an honour to have one of Qatar Airways’ Airbus A350 aircraft join forces with the world-famous Red Arrows and take part in today’s historic fly-by over the impressive Doha skyline.

“In just two decades, Qatar Airways has exceeded all expectations, to rise from humble beginnings to become one of the world’s leading and most admired airlines.

“I am proud of all that Qatar Airways has achieved in the past 20 years and as we embark on the next 20 years I look forward to continuing to demonstrate the passion, innovation and award-winning customer service that we have become renowned for.”
