At this year’s Qatar International Food Festival 2015, the much lauded Dinner in the Sky is hosted by none other than the country’s national airline, Qatar Airways. And this dining experience is not for the faint of heart. Guests can avail of one of seven opportunities each day of the festival to be lifted into the air by cranes on a specially made dining set platform.

Twenty two guests will be seated and have a breathtaking view of the bay and the city from a height of 50 meters as they sit and dine a three-course menu that has been exclusively designed for the Qatar Airways’ premium passengers. Safety harnesses will be provided for all. The dining platform will have a central serving station to take orders up in the sky. Experience the journey of a lunch in the sky virtually below, and get inspired to head over to the festival in MIA Park and take advantage of this fabulous once-in-a-lifetime experience right here in Doha.
