Qatar Airways staff join together to show their united support for the State of Qatar

Qatar Airways demonstrated its support and solidarity with the State of Qatar by installing a vast patriotic canvas displaying the iconic image of the country’s Emir, His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, along with the viral tagline, ‘Tamim Al Majd’ (Tamim the glorious).   

The canvas signing event, held recently in front of the Qatar Airways corporate headquarters, was inaugurated by Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker, who proudly signed the display first, as a gesture of solidarity between the national airline and its thriving home and hub. Shortly after, Qatar Airways staff members were invited to sign the ‘Tamim Al Majd’ canvas to show their support. In the coming days it is expected that the display will be visited and signed by thousands of Qatar Airways’ employees, who have been tremendously supportive since the onset of the illegal blockade against the State of Qatar.

The signing event was also attended by Hamad International Airport Chief Operating Officer Eng Badr Al Meer, who were joined by a delegation of senior Qatar Airways management. The event also attracted some of Qatar’s biggest social media influencers, as well as famous Qatari singer Fahad Al Qubaisi.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said:

This signing event marks a very proud moment for us here at Qatar Airways, as we celebrate our unity in the midst of this unprecedented blockade against my country. Today, we show our commitment to the State of Qatar by displaying the renowned image of our leader, the Emir of the State of Qatar, His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. I am truly glad to see so many of our employees, from Qatar as well as from many other nations all across the world, enthusiastically showing their support.

The State of Qatar will continue to strive, expand, and excel in all areas, and we as an airline will also follow the same path, because we don’t believe in boundaries, we believe in bringing people together. We will continue to fly the skies, and we will continue to go places together.’

Qatar Airways’ newest ambassador Fahad Al Qubaisi said:

I’m thrilled to be here for this important event, where we have gathered to show our unity as a nation in the midst of this blockade. Such a significant show of support from Qatar Airways employees is truly inspiring to see.’

This memorable occasion comes at a time when Qatar Airways and Qatar are constructively working side by side to enable the national carrier to continue to provide the same level of world-class service it always has, despite the illegally-imposed blockade.
