The tour was led by His Excellency Mr. Jassim Seif Ahmed Al Sulaiti, Minister of Transport for the State of Qatar, and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

Over the course of the week it is estimated that more than 1,000 airshow guests and media toured Qatar Airways’ aircraft.

 

Mr. Al Baker commented: “Qatar Airways was central to the aircraft on static display at this year’s Dubai Airshow, with three of our finest aircraft present. This demonstrates the significant growth of our fleet in recent years, enabling Qatar Airways to showcase to the aviation industry the world’s very latest aircraft and interior product types, including the A350, for which Qatar Airways was the global launch customer.”
