Qatar Airways’ A350-1000 has touched down in the United States for the first time.

 

The aircraft touched down in Philadelphia on 23 July 2018, transporting the German national football team, FC Bayern München, to the U.S. for the 2018 Audi Summer Tour.

Following the aircraft’s arrival in Philadelphia, the A350-1000 will fly to Miami, where the star-studded football team’s second and final match during the pre-season U.S. tour will take place.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “The arrival of our state-of-the-art A350-1000 in the U.S. for the first time is truly a monumental moment in our industry, and we are thrilled to bring the eminent FC Bayern München team to the U.S. for their 2018 U.S. tour. FC Bayern München is a team that celebrates ambition, initiative and the desire to exceed expectations – core values that Qatar Airways shares, clearly demonstrated through our acquisition of the world’s most technologically advanced aircraft, the A350-1000.”

Chief Executive Officer of FC Bayern München, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said: “FC Bayern München is very pleased to team up in a long-term partnership with Qatar Airways. Our new partner sets the highest standards in the airline industry. As a club, we have very close ties to our Bavarian culture and traditions of our hometown, the city of Munich. In recent years football has become a global sport, and FC Bayern München is reaching out to the growing number of fans all over the world. There is no better airline than Qatar Airways to reach these diverse international destinations.”
