Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said the airline's global sale was an attractive offer expected to generate huge interest worldwide.

“For those planning to visit family or friends, or just keen on a getaway break, Qatar Airways is offering these value fares to over 100 destinations we fly to across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America,” he said.

“We are very pleased to offer these great savings to our loyal customers, and to those travelling with us for the first time. The promotional offers are not only appealing, but the large number of destinations available is also extremely attractive.

“2011 was a big year for Qatar Airways, and 2012 is going to be even bigger as we introduce more destinations to our international network and more flights on existing routes to give our customers a wide array of travel choices.”



Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of 108 aircraft to 113 key business and leisure destinations worldwide. Last year was a landmark 12 months for Qatar Airways, which inducted 15 new destinations to its network, and won the coveted Skytrax Airline of the Year Award.
