Qatar Airways has unveiled a unique livery to celebrate the Expo 2023 Doha which opens on October 2, 2023.
In a ceremony at Hamad International Airport (DOH) attended by Qatar Airways Group CEO, Akbar Al Baker, an Airbus A330-300 from the airline’s fleet was displayed adorned with the new livery.
The new livery included the Expo 2023 Doha’s logo of a ring of flowers, which reflects that event’s themes of ‘Green Desert, Better Environment’ and aims to “promote sustainable innovations and combat desertification”.
Qatar Airways is one of Expo 2023 Doha’s official strategic partners and from October 11, 2023, passengers will notice several changes to their in-flight experience with the carrier.
These will include curated beverages and an exclusive à la carte menu spotlighting Qatari farm-sourced ingredients, along with Expo-themed in-flight entertainment.
There will also be a dedicated Expo channel offering over 30 gardening-related shows, ensuring a memorable horticultural experience in-flight.
“We welcome all countries to Expo 2023 Doha, which represents a continuation of our inspiring journey filled with innovation, collaboration, and pioneering solutions. The arrival of the Expo 2023 Doha aircraft at Hamad International Airport symbolizes our commitment to fostering a sustainable and innovative future as enshrined in Qatar’s national vision,” Akbar Al Baker said.
As part of its substantial contribution to Expo 2023, Qatar Airways will feature the ‘Qatar Airways Garden’, an impressive pavilion highlighting engaging activations designed to illustrate the Expo’s themes.
Mohammed Ali Al Khouri, secretary-general of Expo 2023 Doha, said: “Qatar Airways has consistently demonstrated its commitment to sustainability through its various global initiatives. As a testament to this commitment, we are honored to take part in the unveiling of our Expo 2023 Doha livery.
