During the five-day event the airline is showcasing its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, never previously displayed at an air show.

Also appearing at Farnborough Air Show is a Boeing 777-300ER aircraft with a special FIFA World Cup 2022 Livery, in anticipation of the tournament to be hosted in Doha later this year.

Qatar Executive, the private jet charter division of Qatar Airways Group, is displaying its luxurious Gulfstream G650ER; one of the most coveted jets among the global travelling elite due to its remarkable range capabilities, industry-leading cabin technology, fuel efficiency and unparalleled passenger comfort. The elegant aircraft can fly at a faster speed for longer distances than any other of its kind, with its incredible 7,500 nautical mile range, and is renowed for its refined cabin interior and stylish touches.


Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “It has been a few years since we have been able to attend such an event, so it is great to return to this year’s Farnborough Air Show in our strongest ever financial position. Our record-breaking financial year with a $1.54 billion profit comes at an important milestone for Qatar Airways, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary and look forward to bringing hundreds of thousands of football fans to Doha for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.”
