Qatar Airways Showcased At Singapore Holiday Exhibition

Doha, QATAR - Qatar Airways will be taking part in Singapore's biggest and most eagerly anticipated travel fair, Holiday 2004, organised by the National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS) at Suntec City from September 24-26.

This year-end counterpart to the NATAS Travel exhibition, which takes place every spring, will see participating exhibitors from travel agencies, national tourist associations, hotels, resorts, cruise companies and major airlines.

Following its successful participation in NATAS Travel in March, Qatar Airways will again showcase its destinations and five star services to visitors attending the holiday fair with its 36 sqm state-of-the-art stand.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker said: “We are keen to establish our presence with travellers and travel agents in the region. In December last year we launched our thrice-weekly services to Singapore, bringing our destinations in the Far East up to eight cities, with further routes from Doha to the region being considered.

“The NATAS holiday fair is visited by travel and tourism officials, travel agents and non-trade visitors from the Far East and Pacific region. It gives us a great opportunity to build on the awareness of Qatar Airways, its superior services and rapidly growing international network.

“This is the time of year when bookings are made for the holiday season, including Christmas and the Chinese New Year, and people are out in force to get inspired by new offers in the market. It is a perfect opportunity to put Qatar Airways and Qatar as a new and exciting holiday destination in the forefront of people’s minds.

“With some 150 exhibitors and more than 50,000 visitors expected to the three-day event, NATAS Holiday is the ideal arena to promote Qatar and Qatar Airways,“ added Al Baker.

Qatar Airways flies to Singapore three times a week, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Flight QR638 leaves Doha International Airport at 2240, arriving at Singapore Changi Airport at 1130 the following morning.

Flight QR639 from Singapore leaves Changi Airport at 0745 on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, arriving at Doha International Airport at 1040 local time on the same day.

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

Skytrax also named Qatar Airways’ cabin crew as Best in the Middle East for the fifth year running in 2007 following a survey of more than 15 million passengers worldwide.
