The Football World Cup, which is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18 this year, is expected to add $17 billion to Qatar’s economy.

With the huge volume of requests, the company stated it will make accessible aircraft varying from the very light and reasonably priced four-seater Cessna Citation Mustang to the light jet eight-seater Pilatus PC-12 and the midsize jet nine-seater Bombardier Challenger 604.

The company told it can also offer a 10-seater Falcon 2000 and a large-size cabin aircraft. Its charter flights can accommodate flyers travelling in different group sizes from individuals, families, groups of friends or corporates, the company said.

Qatar Airways swings to annual revenue after years of losses

Qatar Airways on Thursday posted its first annual profit since 2017 following years of losses blamed on a regional political dispute and the pandemic. The airline, which only operates international flights, said it made a profit of 5.6 billion riyal in the year to March 31, compared to a year ago loss of 14.8 billion.

It said revenue climbed 78% to 52.3 billion revenues as passenger traffic more than tripled to 18.5 million, which was still down compared to the year before the pandemic struck. The cargo business, however, recorded its best year with the airline carrying 3 million tons of freight.

Air freight rates have sky-rocketed since the start of the pandemic, in part due to constraints in the shipping industry. Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker told business fundamentals would have been helped to a greater degree if it was not for unforeseen circumstances that have significantly impacted fleet capacity and ability to add expand its route network.
