Qatar Airways launches 25th anniversary retro aircraft

Qatar Airways has welcomed a nostalgic flashback to its early days of operation with the delivery of a retro-painted Boeing 777-300 aircraft, celebrating the company’s 25 years of operation. The aircraft made its retro livery debut operating as flight QR 041 from Hamad International Airport (HIA), Doha to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, and will become a familiar sight on several other Qatar Airways routes in the coming 12 months. Qatar Airways Group’s CEO Akbar Al Baker does not hide his excitement over the initiative. “We hope this retro design brings back many travel memories for our passengers, especially those who experienced traveling with us in our early years. This livery marks how far we’ve come as a national carrier, evolving into a six-time winner of the World’s Best Airline”, he said. The executive also makes a point of remembering that this is an important year for the company and for the destination where he operates most, with the World Cup being held at the end of the year. “We will continue to shine and share our success with those at the heart of everything we do – our millions of loyal passengers around the world”, he said. – https://www.panrotas.com.br/aviacao/empresas/2022/02/qatar-airways-lanca-aeronave-retro-comemorativa-de-25-anos_187562.html
