Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Saturday, 1 October 2011

Qatar Airways has taken delivery of its 100th airliner, a Boeing 777-200LR.

The Doha-based airline now operates twenty seven Boeing 777s of various types, including sixteen 777-300ERs (extended range), two 777 Freighters and nine 777-200LRs. It also still has 13 more Boeing 777s of different variants scheduled for delivery.

"Since we received our first Boeing 777 in November 2007, the airplane has earned itself a reputation for comfort, versatility and reliability, and it is only fitting that our 100th aircraft is a 777," said Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways. "From an operational perspective, the 777 has enabled us to pursue our aggressive global expansion plans, allowing us to operate direct non-stop flights from our Doha hub in Qatar to destinations such as Sao Paolo in Brazil, and Melbourne in Australia, in a cost-effective manner. From a passenger perspective, the airplane offers unparalleled reliability, while its cabin architecture, combined with our award- inning Five Star service and interiors makes for one of the finest flying experiences for passengers today."

Qatar Airways flies one of the youngest and most modern fleet of airplanes in the world. Its current network includes over 100 destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific, North America and South America.
