Qatar Airways has introduced FC Barcelona’s livery for the first time on a Boeing 777.

The aircraft, which features the distinctive Barça scarlet and blue, or ‘Blaugrana’ as it is known in Catalan, arrived from Bangkok this week at Doha International Airport.

Building on the concept of ‘a team that unites the world’, the design incorporates the colourful Barça flag draped across the fuselage of a Boeing 777.

The aircraft was sent to Dublin, Ireland, where it took a team one week to hand paint the custom-made design onto the aircraft.

Using an airbrush the team produced a shading effect to help create the illusion of the Barça flag moving as the aircraft takes to the skies.

Additional stenciling was used for the text as well as the football club’s crest which sits on the fuselage of the aircraft.

“Our commitment to Barca goes beyond having our name on the team jerseys. We are truly fans of the team and genuinely believe that together we are ‘a team that unites the world’,” said Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker.

“We are very proud to showcase the FCB livery alongside the Qatar Airways Oryx on our aircraft. It is just one more way that we are able to demonstrate the strong partnership between our two organisations.”
