One year after the unforgettable FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, Qatar Airways had renewed its partnership with the world footballing body to remain as its Global Airline Partner until 2030.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Officer Engr Badr Mohammed Al Meer and FIFA President Gianni Infantino formalised the deal on the one-year anniversary of the Arab world’s first-ever FIFA World Cup.

The extended partnership was announced at the award-winning Hamad International Airport against the backdrop of the airline’s Boeing 787-8 and the Airbus A350-900 planes.

The agreement will cover significant FIFA tournaments including the 2026 FIFA World Cup, 2027 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the 2030 FIFA World Cup as well as all youth men’s and women’s tournaments, commencing with the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Indonesia.

Since May 2017, Qatar Airways has been an integral part of FIFA’s global initiatives. With the renewed partnership, the airlines will continue to play a vital role in the development of football worldwide.

As FIFA’s Global Airline Partner, Qatar Airways will be able to engage with fans on a deeper level, both at tournaments and through various digital platforms.

Qatar Airways Group CEO Engr Badr Mohammed Al Meer said: “We’re excited to extend our partnership with FIFA as the Global Airline Partner. As an airline, we’re committed to connecting the world, and this partnership allows us to reach millions of football fans.

“Football has the power to unite people across cultures and continents, and we’re proud to continue to be a part of this incredible journey. We eagerly anticipate the upcoming tournaments and look forward to creating unforgettable experiences for fans around the world,” he said.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said: “I’m very proud to announce the renewal of the partnership between Qatar Airways and FIFA. It’s a great partnership that’s brought a lot of success to FIFA, and of course to Qatar Airways.”

“My thanks to Engr Badr Mohammed Al Meer, the GCEO, and to the whole fantastic team of Qatar Airways. One year after the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, here we’re again to celebrate,” said the top official.
