Qatar Airways has operated daily flights to the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires, as well as the Brazilian city of São Paulo since 2010. In December 2016, Qatar Airways Group further strengthened these ties through a strategic investment, acquiring 10% stake in South American LATAM Airlines Group.
Qatar Airways is well-known for championing sport as a means of connecting communities around the world. The agreement with Boca Juniors is just one of the many exciting sporting sponsorships the airline has recently added to its extensive sponsorship portfolio. In addition to its existing partnership with the German football club giants FC Bayern München AG, Qatar Airways also recently revealed a multi-year sponsorship agreement with Italian football club AS Roma, for which it will become the Official Jersey Sponsor through the 2020-21 season.
