Qatar Airways has unveiled a new Formula 1-inspired livery on one of the carrier’s Boeing 777 jets.
The move comes in anticipation of the Qatar Grand Prix which will be held just outside the city of Lusail from October 6 and October 8, 2023.
In the announcement on August 15, 2023, the flag carrier is also promoting its leisure arm, Qatar Airways Holidays, which is offering enthusiasts a unique experience at F1 races throughout the season through its exclusive fan package.
The travel packages are designed to provide a seamless motorsport experience, with the inclusion of return flights, hotel accommodation, a wide range of passes including F1 Paddock Club and Grandstand race tickets, and much more.
“The months of October and November will deliver a collection of world-class automotive activities dedicated to fans around the world. As the Official Global Airline Partner of Formula 1, we are honoured to host international visitors to Qatar; once again delivering our unparalleled hospitality and bringing the world closer together through sport,” Qatar Airways Group CEO and chairman of Qatar Tourism, Akbar Al Baker, said.
From September 20 to October 10, 2023, on select flights, Qatar Airways passengers can also try delicacies inspired by the airline’s partnership with Formula 1. The branded menus reflect F1 themed desserts in Business and Economy Class.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Qatar Airways, our Official Sponsor, for their support. The partnership between Lusail International Circuit and Qatar Airways will play a pivotal role in bringing together global Formula 1 fans in Qatar. Our new state-of-the-art track will ensure we deliver a seamless and unforgettable experience for local, regional, and international spectators. We look forward to welcoming F1 fans from all over the globe,” Abdulrahman bin Abdullatif Al Mannai, president of the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation and Lusail International Circuit, said.
