Qatar Airways sets the record straight about its contribution to the U.S. economy

Qatar Airways has released its latest TV commercial and social media campaign, highlighting the airline’s contribution to the US economy and taking its message directly to the American people: “Our success is also America’s shared success.”

The campaign, seen by more than 8 million people on social media, cites independently-gathered data that clearly demonstrates the airline’s robust $91.8 billion investment in the American economy through its 332 American-made aircraft. The award-winning airline also directly supports 123,000 American jobs and flies 3.1 million visitors to the US annually – visitors who helped pump an extra $4 billion into the US economy in 2016 alone.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “This commercial expresses how tremendously proud we are of the investment we have made, and continue to make every year, in the US economy. Our 332 American-made aircraft are testament to the faith we have in America, and in American-made products.

Qatar Airways recently announced an order for two Boeing 747-8 Freighters and four 777-300ERs, valued at $2.16 billion at list prices, a sign of the airline’s continued expansion and contribution to the US economy.

The 747-8 Freighter gives cargo operators the lowest operating costs and best economics of any large freighter aircraft while providing enhanced environmental performance. It is optimized to provide greater revenue cargo-carrying capability than the 747-400, offering 16 per cent more cargo volume while keeping its unique nose door.
