Qatar Airways hosted a private gala dinner with influential business leaders, industry experts and heads of commerce to help complete the celebrations for the launch of its newest route to Chiang Mai, Thailand.

The exclusive gala dinner was attended by Jassim bin Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti, Minister of Transport and Communications for the State of Qatar, who hosted an array of trade and industry representatives, alongside Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker. The Thai Ambassador to the State of Qatar, Soonthorn Chaiyindeepum, travelled from Doha to Chiang Mai on the inaugural flight to participate in the prestigious occasion.

The private event also welcomed the Qatari Ambassador to Thailand, Jassem Al-Thani, who travelled from Bangkok to be part of the Qatari delegation. Other representatives included leaders from the tourist industry, local businesses and major industry associations, representing companies from across Thailand.

Qatar’s Minister of Transport and Communications, Jassim bin Saif Ahmed Al-Sulaiti, said: “Qatar Airways’ new route to Chiang Mai from Doha recognises the very important ties of friendship and commerce that exist between the State of Qatar and the Kingdom of Thailand. It is a relationship that will only grow stronger thanks to the launch of this new service and one which we are delighted to pay tribute to tonight.

“Qatar is a nation that deeply understands and appreciates the importance of friendship between countries and their peoples. We look forward to continuing to work closely with the people of Thailand through the launch of this new connection.”

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “It has been an honour to mark the start of this, our new four-times-weekly service from Doha to Chiang Mai, in the company of so many illustrious guests, including so many important government officials, influential business leaders and heads of commerce.

“We have been warmly welcomed by the people of Chiang Mai who have come together to recognise the importance of our new route into Thailand’s second biggest city. I feel very confident this new route will prove fruitful for Qatar’s national flag carrier, for the people of Thailand and good for the significant tourism industry here. We look forward to working closely with all of the guests who joined us here at tonight’s event to cement the strong bonds that exist between the State of Qatar and Thailand.”
