Qatar Airways enters sponsorship deal with Sydney Swans football team
The three-year sponsorship is a milestone for Qatar Airways in Australia, showcasing its commitment to the region where it has doubled its footprint in 2016. Sydney and Adelaide joined the global network in March and May respectively and Qatar Airways also serves Perth and Melbourne.
“Qatar Airways has long supported some of the best sports clubs and events in the world,” Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said. “We strongly believe in connecting with our global travelers through their passion for sport and have been looking for the right partner for Qatar Airways in Australia’s sports arena."
Al Baker noted the support of the Australian community in flying Qatar Airways and he said that the company looks forward to sharing in Australian travelers’ love of football and their commitment to the Sydney Swans.
“Qatar Airways is a global brand and leader in international air travel, so we’re delighted to have them join the Sydney Swans as our Official International Airline Partner,” Sydney Swans Chairman Andrew Pridham said. “Both organisations share a common goal in that we are passionate about delivering premium experiences and strive for excellence in everything we do.”
