Qatar Airways to Work with MOTC to Widen IT Access for Airline Staff

QR and MOTC MOU signing

Qatar Airways has announced a new partnership with the Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) that aims to widen access to information technology by junior members of its staff in Qatar.

To formalise the partnership, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed on the sidelines of this year’s Qatar Information Technology Conference and Exhibition (QITCOM 2019) by Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, HE Akbar Al Baker and Assistant Undersecretary of Digital Society Development at MOTC, Reem Al Manoori, in the presence of the Minister of Transport and Communications, HE Jassim Bin Saif Al Sulaiti.

The partnership, which falls under MOTC’s Better Connections programme, will see hundreds of computers installed at Qatar Airways company accommodation. The partnership will also see the delivery of IT training for staff through workshops and e-learning courses; and the development of digital resources for airline employees to help them understand their employment rights and manage key administrative processes.

According to HE Jassim Bin Saif Al Sulaiti, they are delighted to be working and collaborating with Qatar Airways, and for them to play an important role in achieving digital inclusion for everyone. The partnership could enhance the staff’s way of living, and pave the way for their part in the digital world.

MOTC will continue to work closely and build partnerships with different entities and concerned organisations in Qatar to increase the number of people benefiting from the programme.’

HE Akbar Al Baker said it is an honour to partner with MOTC on such a worthy initiative.

By widening access and training in information technology, we can make a real difference to the lives of thousands of our hardworking employees, making it easier for them to find key information. I look forward to working closely with the Ministry to implement this programme in the coming weeks and months.’
