Qatar Airways has launched a new brand campaign inviting people to ‘Let’s Fly’ as the world reopens and travellers once again take to the skies in search of new experiences and memories. With trips postponed, family occasions missed and friends disconnected over the last two years, the new campaign encourages people to start an exceptional journey of discovery from the moment they step on board a Qatar Airways aircraft.
With creative agency partner McCann London, this is the largest brand collaboration the airline has seen in seven years. Embracing the iconic Qatar Airways colour, a burgundy carpet inspires travellers to journey to the locations of their dreams, while a new specially created song, also titled ‘Let’s Fly,’ invites them to let the airline ‘take you somewhere new’ to experience ‘burgundy sunset sky’.
As one of the only airlines to never stop flying during the pandemic, Qatar Airways has regrown its network to almost 150 global destinations, with around 500 daily flights taking people to where they want to go. Inspiration and excitement of every form lies in wait – strolling through parks on an unforgettable city break, tiptoeing across the sand on the relaxing beach vacation of a lifetime, getting up close with wildlife on an African safari or simply reuniting with family and friends after time spent apart.
“The world has faced many challenges over the past two years and, as people begin to once again travel for leisure, we hope this latest brand campaign will inspire people to have the confidence to take to the skies once more and experience an exceptional journey with the World’s Best Airline,” Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr Akbar Al Baker, said. “It is our mission to invite travellers, wherever they are in the world, to create memories for our passengers and ensure the journey is part of their experience, not just a way to get to their destination.”
A multiple award-winning airline, Qatar Airways was announced as the ‘Airline of the Year’ at the 2021 World Airline Awards, managed by the international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax. It was also named ‘World’s Best Business Class’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Airline Lounge’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Airline Seat’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Onboard Catering’ and ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’. The airline continues to stand alone at the top of the industry having won the main prize for an unprecedented sixth time (2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021).
Qatar Airways has also become the first global airline in the world to achieve the prestigious 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating by Skytrax. This follows the success of HIA as the first airport in the Middle East and Asia to be awarded a Skytrax 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating. These awards provide assurance to passengers across the world that the airline’s health and safety measures are subject to the highest possible standards of professional, independent scrutiny and assessment.
