Airline relishes chance to back tennis tournament in Doha

Novak Djokovic won the tournament, but Qatar Airways says it and the region were the big winners of the recently concluded 2017 Qatar ExxonMobil Open.

“Qatar Airways was thrilled to support the Qatar leg of the ATP World Tour and to welcome professional players to Doha, who both delight and entertain spectators and inspire the next generation of sportsmen and women,” Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group chief executive, said. “Qatar Airways has long been an ambassador for sport and partnerships such as the one we have with the Qatar Tennis Association and ATP World Tour, which enable us to promote the values of sport and to connect and celebrate with fans across the world.”

It was Djokovic's second consecutive victory at the tournament, which was co-sponsored by Qatar Duty Free and took place at the Khalifa International Tennis and Squash Complex.

During the tournament, the airline hosted an interactive booth at which visitors could practice their tennis skills via a virtual tennis tournament.

“Qatar Duty Free is delighted to have been a sponsor of the event and to have welcomed visitors and the community of Qatar to our booth, which offered the chance for them to win and take home their own life-changing prize fund via the QDF Millionaire Draw,” Luis Gasset, senior vice president of Qatar Duty Free, said.
