Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, toured the Boeing factory in Everett, Washington on Tuesday 18 September with Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and Chief Executive Officer, Kevin McAllister.

 

The visit provided Al Baker and visiting guests the opportunity to view Boeing’s 777X, the manufacturer’s latest-generation aircraft for which Qatar Airways is a global launch customer.

Building on the passenger-preferred and market-leading 777, the Boeing 777X is the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, incorporating 787 Dreamliner technologies and new advances to redefine the total passenger experience featuring a wider cabin, larger windows and enhanced architecture.

Al Baker, said: “Our relationship with Boeing is testament to the fact that Qatar Airways is continuing to grow at a record pace. We are tremendously proud of our relationship with Boeing, and our visit is further evidence of our commitment to expanding our fleet to include the most technologically-advanced and efficient aircraft on the market. We are especially pleased to have had this opportunity to view the Boeing 777X, and are very proud to be a global launch customer for this product.”

McAllister, said: “Boeing is proud of its long-standing relationship with Qatar Airways and the confidence that the airline has consistently shown in our aircraft. We are honoured to host Qatar Airways at the Everett factory and to have the opportunity to share an up-close look at the 777X, which will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world when it enters revenue service in 2020.”

On Tuesday, Qatar Airways also took delivery of two Boeing 777 Freighters.
