Qatar Airways celebrated the launch of its new offices in Amman, Jordan on Monday. The successful office opening celebration was attended by the Transport Minister of Jordan, Anmar Khasawneh and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive HE Akbar al-Baker.
The ceremony was also attended by several senior officials and VIPs, including Minister of Tourism and Antiquities of Jordan, Majd Shweikeh, and the Minister of Digital Economy and Entrepreneurship of Jordan, Mothanna Ghairaibeh.
Other notable figures who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony include Jordanian ambassador to Qatar Zaid al-Lozi; chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Civil Aviation Regulatory Authority of Jordan Captain Haitham Misto; and interim Charge d'affaires of the Embassy of the State of Qatar to Jordan Abdulaziz bin Mohamed Khalifa al-Sada.
Khasawneh welcomed the opening of Qatar Airways' new offices in Amman, expressing hope that this crucial step will spur a series of Qatari investments in the kingdom. He further praised the distinguished relations between Jordan and Qatar, underscoring the importance of overcoming all obstacles and challenges impeding meaningful partnerships between the two countries with regards to the transport sector.
During the media roundtable held in Amman, al-Baker said, “Jordan is an integral market for Qatar Airways, where we operate three daily flights to Amman using wide-body aircraft, including the state-of-the-art Airbus A350. The opening of our new offices in the kingdom comes as a response to the growing demand for quality flights, in addition to serving as further confirmation that Qatar Airways has become the airline of choice for discerning travellers from Jordan. We are looking forward to further enhancing our offerings and services in Jordan and are certain that the launch of our new offices will help us achieve our goal."
Qatar Airways launched its first flight to Amman in 1994. Since then, Amman has consistently been one of the airline’s primary destinations, with 21 weekly flights (three flights per day) from Doha to the Jordanian capital. Meanwhile, more than 400 Jordanians work hard as part of Qatar Airways Group’s team to support the group's development and contribute to enhancing its services.
Qatar Airways entered into a codeshare agreement with Royal Jordanian Airlines in 2015, allowing both airlines to reach various additional destinations around the world. The agreement recently expanded to allow passengers to fly to East Asia through Hamad International Airport.
Qatar Airways was named ‘Best Airline’ at the Skytrax World Awards 2019. Qatar’s national carrier also won the ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’, ‘Best Business Class in the World’ and ‘Best Business Class Award’ for their flagship Qsuite.
The airline has also become the first in the world to win the World's Best Airline award five times. Considered one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, Qatar Airways operates a modern fleet of more than 250 aircraft to more than 160 destinations across its hub at Hamad International Airport.
Qatar Airways participates in several CSR initiatives in Jordan, including its consistent support to the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC) and Foundation. Representatives from the airline have visited KHCC on several occasions over the past years, dressed as various characters from the Oryx Kids Club to distribute gifts to children currently undergoing treatment at the center.
The national airline also participated in distributing humanitarian aid packages to underprivileged families in Jordan in co-operation with the Jordanian Hashemite Charity Organisation, Qatar Charitable Society and the Qatar Red Crescent.
