Qatar Airways operated nearly 14,000 flights during World Cup


Qatar Airways concluded its FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 journey in style, presenting the medals and individual awards to Argentina after their historic 4-2 victory on penalties over 2018 champions, France. Following a thrilling month of non-stop action and entertainment, the airline operated nearly 14,000 Flights, uniting the world in Qatar for the greatest sporting show on Earth.

As the Official Airline Partner of FIFA and the Official Airline of the Journey, Qatar Airways celebrated the historic FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with its global passengers through countless international, local, and onboard football-themed activations and entertainment experiences.

The tournament was a resounding success, with impressive attendance figures of over 3.4mn fans throughout the 64 matches. Throughout the duration of the tournament, the Qatar Airways Sky House, located at the FIFA Fan Festival at Al Bidda Park, welcomed more than 1.8mn fans. The iconic pavilion provided a range of interactive activities, including a Neymar challenge, Qverse experience, Swing the World, foosball, and face painting.

HE Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar al-Baker, said: “What started off as a dream has finally turned into reality. The State of Qatar succeeded in bringing the world together in a celebration of football and unity, and now history will remember this FIFA World Cup — the first in the Middle East, and the best edition ever. On behalf of the Qatar Airways Group, I would like to congratulate the Argentinian team for their victorious performance and also commend the French team for their inspiring journey throughout the tournament.

“We are grateful to have been a part of this long and rewarding experience as the Official Airline of the Journey. For every step and every mile travelled with us, we have aimed to deliver a flying experience like no other.”
