Qatar Airways Helps Chinese Family

Doha, QATAR: Qatar Airways has lent its support to a Chinese family faced with dire circumstances, as they had coped with mounting obstacles to transport their ailing son from Amman, Jordan to the city of Shanghai in China.

Recently, Ma Jie (Hussain Sadiq), a Chinese student studying at the Jordanian University in Amman, fell into a deep coma after a serious car accident left him with grave injuries to the brain, as well as numerous other injuries including rib and nerve damage.

The family has been informed by the young mans’ doctors that he could stay in coma for 6 months to 2 years, during which time, he must remain in hospital for continuous observation and medical treatment.

Stranded in Amman, due to an arduous financial situation coupled with mounting medical bills, the family has sought the help of Qatar Airways in transporting Ma Jie, his mother, and brother from Amman to Shanghai, where he will continue his medical treatment.

“After hearing this tragedy, Qatar Airways wanted to lend its’ support and assist in any way it can,” said Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Akbar Al Baker.

“Given our special ties with China, we were especially moved to do something by providing this family the chance to go back to their home in Shanghai to be among their relatives at this difficult time.

“We firmly believe in giving back to the community, and contributing our resources to humanitarian causes such as this,” said Mr. Al Baker, adding “we have since transported the family on one of our three weekly flights to Shanghai.

“I hope that my airline is recognized not only as the fastest growing airline in the world, but also as an airline that represents the values and hospitality of Qatar, while striving to provide compassion and care to those in need.

“On behalf of Qatar Airways and all of its’ staff, we would like to extend our well wishes to Ma Jie’s family, and wish Ma Jie a speedy recovery,” added Mr. Al Baker.

Doha-based Qatar Airways will operate a fleet of 110 aircraft by 2013 – almost double the existing size. Qatar Airways has ordered 80 Airbus A350s, 60 Boeing 787s and 32 Boeing 777s, with deliveries of the latter having started in November 2007. The airline is a launch customer of the twin-deck Airbus A380 ‘super jumbos’ with five aircraft on order and scheduled for delivery from 2010. Qatar Airways moves to the New Doha International Airport in 2010, when the first phase of the new facility opens. For more information, visit www.ndiaproject.com
