Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, H E Akbar Al Baker, said:“With less than a year to go until the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, this tournament will be the perfect test run for us as Official Airline and Official Partner of FIFA to prepare for the big stage. As this will be the first ever FIFA Arab Cup, Qatar will showcase the best of pan-Arab football. We want to provide a seamless primary touchpoint for fans, players, coaching staff and officials during their journey and stay here so that they can enjoy the best tournament possible.”

In addition to the exciting travel packages available, enthusiasts attending the Arab Cup will be able to play virtual football and enjoy a host of other action-packed games when they visit the Qatar Airways pavilion located at the Al Bayt Stadium's public arena.

The airline will be welcoming spectators to step into the spotlight and create memories inside its FIFA Arab Cup inspired photo-booth, by capturing a selfie to share with friends. Qatar Airways Official Frequent Flyer programme will also offer visitors the opportunity to earn 1,500 bonus Qmiles upon joining its Privilege Club at the event.

Most recently, the airline sponsored the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup and the UEFA Euro 2020, and has an extensive global sports partnership portfolio that includes football-governing bodies such as FIFA, CONCACAF and CONMEBOL. As FIFA's Official Partner, Qatar Airways has sponsored mega events including the 2019 and 2020 editions of the FIFA Club World Cup, and will sponsor the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

Qatar Airways also sponsors some of the world's biggest football clubs including Al Sadd SC, Boca Juniors, FC Bayern München, K.A.S. Eupen, and PSG.

Qatar Airways is the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by Skytrax. This follows the success of Hamad International Airport (HIA) as the first airport in the Middle East and Asia to be awarded a Skytrax 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating.

These awards provide assurance to passengers around the world that the airline's health and safety standards are subject to the highest possible standards of professional, independent scrutiny and assessment.
