Thumbs up Qatar now to Zurich

Qatar Airways’ Switzerland flights launched

Qatar Airways has launched its service to the dream tourist destination, Switzerland, with the inaugural flight QR 063 touching down in Zurich’s Unique Airport on Thursday.

A press release issued yesterday said an official delegation headed by Qatar Airways’ Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker, Senior Manager Commercial Operations - West Fathi Shehab, and Regional Manager - Europe S A Ramachandran arrived in Zurich and were received by the Ambassador of Qatar to Switzerland, Fahad A Al Thani, Switzerland’s State Secretary for Economic Affairs, head of Middle East and Africa Division Rita Trier-Somazzi and Unique Airport’s CEO Josef Felder.

The delegation was greeted by a traditional welcome, which included a Swiss traditional group and an official “water splash” welcome by the local fire brigade.

“This is indeed a very proud and momentous occasion for Qatar Airways as it positions itself in the forefront of our industry,” said Akbar Al Baker. “Zurich represents our 53rd global destination, and with its addition to our growing route network, it gives our passengers even greater flexibility to make faster, easier connections to the wide range of destinations we offer.

We are extremely pleased to be able to offer our unsurpassed five-star service to the people of Switzerland and to potential travelers from around the world who choose our airline,” added Akbar Al Baker.
