DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways has introduced signature Nappa Dori amenity kits on board for all of its premium passengers travelling on short and medium haul flights. The artisan brand, Nappa Dori, which has gained global recognition for its luxury handcrafted travel and fashion accessories, has created bespoke amenity kits that celebrate the airline’s global network by featuring images from the more than 150 destinations Qatar Airways serves.
Qatar Airways is the first airline to launch an exclusive worldwide partnership with Nappa Dori, the New Delhi-based brand, and is one of the only international airlines to offer amenity kits to its premium passengers flying short distances from Doha.
Together the two innovative brands have combined vintage and contemporary styles to create unique canvas amenity kits that currently feature one of three iconic cityscapes, Doha, Paris, and London. The new amenity kits are available on board all Business and First Class flights flying to destinations within five hours of the airline's awards-winning hub and home, Hamad International Airport.
The amenity kit exclusively features lip balm from Italy’s Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio, the environmentally friendly olive oil company, as well as socks and eyeshades. The travel accessory designs are available in four different styles and will be refreshed every few months to ensure frequent travellers can add new keepsake bags to their collection.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Nappa Dori, like Qatar Airways, is a business that prides itself in providing its customers with superb and unique products and invests in quality and service to create an exceptional experience for the customer.
“Our premium travellers deserve the very best service and comfort, whether they are joining us for a short or long flight, we want them to take pleasure in their time on board with Qatar Airways.”
Qatar Airways also recently announced an exclusive three-year partnership with BRICS and Castello Monte Vibiano Vecchio to provide new amenity kits and products to Business and First Class travellers on long-haul flights.
Rossen Dimitrov, Qatar Airways’ Senior Vice President of Customer Experience, said: “Qatar Airways’ amenity kits are a gift to our passengers, as well as a practical travel accessory for their flight, and the Nappa Dori amenity kits are a beautiful token with which to welcome our premium passengers on board short and medium haul flights.
“The new amenity kits celebrate both Qatar Airways and Nappa Dori’s commitment to innovation and providing bespoke service, and offer our travellers a keepsake by which to remember their journey with us.”
Gautam Sinha, the Founder and Creative Director of Nappa Dori, added: "We are extremely proud of the association with Qatar Airways as the brand resonates similar values of craftsmanship through its service philosophy. In a similar vein to Qatar Airways, Nappa Dori is an aspirational brand that engages with the desires of refined travellers and connoisseurs of travel.”
