Qatar Airways presents its new aircraft at the Farnborough International Airshow

DOHA: Qatar Airways is taking part in the Farnborough International Airshow held in the UK after a record financial year and having expanded its global network to more than 150 destinations.

During the five-day event, Qatar Airways will showcase its state-of-the-art Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, never before shown at an airshow. The passenger plane entered service with the airline in 2021 and includes the new Adient Ascent business class suite, equipped with sliding privacy doors, wireless mobile device charging and a bed -79 inch bed.

A Boeing 777-300ER with a special 2022 FIFA World Cup livery will also be on display at the Farnborough Air Show, ahead of the tournament to be held in Doha from November to December this year. This aircraft is equipped with the industry-leading Qsuite business class seat, voted the best business class seat in the world by Skytrax in 2021.

Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways Group, introduces its luxurious Gulfstream G650ER; one of the most coveted jets among the world’s elite travelers due to its remarkable range capabilities, industry-leading cabin technology, fuel efficiency and unparalleled passenger comfort .

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker, said: “It’s been a few years since we’ve been able to attend such an event, so it’s great to be back at this year’s Farnborough Air Show in our strongest financial position ever. Our record-breaking fiscal year with a profit of $1.54 billion comes at an important milestone for Qatar Airways, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary and look forward to bringing hundreds of thousands of football fans in Doha for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.”

As Qatar Airways prepares for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, the airline faces a unique set of operational challenges due to a significant increase in flight demand to Doha. This will see Qatar Airways undertake a network adjustment unprecedented in the industry, as it will temporarily switch from a global network to a predominantly point-to-point service, with its home at Hamad International Airport, the gateway to the games.

Qatar Airways returns to the Farnborough International Airshow following the release of its annual report for 2021/22 last month, which featured the airlines’ strongest ever financial performance.

Qatar Airways recorded 200% more than its highest historical annual profit and carried more than 18.5 million passengers, an increase of 218% compared to last year.
