Airline celebrates Chinese New Year, onboard and off

Qatar Airways celebrated the Chinese New Year recently with a special menu on flights to popular Asia destinations. But those still on land got to take part in the fun, too, as the airline offered samples of Asian cuisine inside Hamad International Airport.


Qatar Duty Free joined in the festivities, partnering with China UnionPay to offer various promotions at the airport.

“Food, and sharing a meal together, is both an important tradition and a symbolic part of Chinese New Year, believed to bring good luck for the coming year, and Qatar Airways recognizes the importance of celebrating such customs with its passengers, whether they are on board or enjoying our lounge hospitality in Hamad International Airport,” Rossen Dimitrov, senior vice president of Customer Experience for Qatar Airways, said. “As our travelers go places together with Qatar Airways this Chinese New Year, we hope that they enjoy this special occasion and the delicious dishes our celebrated chefs have created for them as they revel in holiday festivities, observe traditions and enjoy family reunions.”
