In an effort to boost ties with China, Qatar Airways recently inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Chengdu Culture and Tourism Development Group.
The airline’s group chief executive, HE Akbar Al Baker and Qatar Airways board member and chairman of Qatar Tourism Authority, HE Engineer Issa Al Mohannadi met with the delegation.
The MoU will integrate resources of both countries to promote and strengthen benefits of the route connectivity, together with tourism and cultural highlights.
“The signing of this Memorandum of Understanding with the Chengdu Culture and Tourism Development Group strengthens our connectivity and ties with China, and in particular highlights not only our own recent route launch to Chengdu in 2013, but Chengdu itself as a tourist destination,” said Al Baker.
Qatar Airways launched two routes to Chengdu and Hangzhou flying directly from Doha. The airline also flies to seven gateways across the country (including Hong Kong) to meet the strong demand from passengers.
