With the FIFA World Cup due to be hosted by Qatar in 2022, the national airline Qatar Airways has unveiled this Boeing 777-300ER aircraft in a special livery to promote the event.
The aircraft, registration A7-BEB, wears a distinctive FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 branding which was hand-painted to commemorate the airline’s partnership with FIFA.
It is expected to enter service on flights QR095 and QR096 between Doha and Zurich on 21 November. This is noteworthy, with Switzerland being the home of FIFA.
“Qatar’s readiness to host FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM is evident all around us. At Qatar Airways, our network recently expanded to 100 destinations, and will further grow to more than 125 destinations by March 2021, with an increasing frequency enabling our passengers to travel when they want across the globe, safely and reliably.
