Qatar Airways Nigeria
Qatar was founded in 1993 and it’s first flight took place in 1994 with only 75 staff members. Since 2013, the Qatari government has had full control over this airline, finally taking over ownership in 2014. In 2013 Qantas achieved another milestone when it signed up with Oneworld, as the first Gulf airline to become a member of one of the international airline alliances. Oneworld is an alliance of 13 leading airlines across the globe that are committed to providing passengers with the best travel experience. Members include Qantas, Japan Airlines, British Airways and Finnair. Passengers can join Oneworld and receive various opportunities and privileges such as frequent flyer miles and access to airport lounges.
Today Qatar is the national flag-carrier of the country and one of the largest airlines in the middle east, consisting of more than 180 aircraft. The Qatar Airways group, to which the airline belongs, employs more than 45 000 people with more than half of this number employed as airline staff. This airline has more than 20 codeshare agreements (see below) with airlines from all over the world including Air Botswana, Asiana Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and Vueling, to name a few.
Its headquarters in Doha at Hamad International Airport is a hive of activity, forming the hub that links more than 150 destinations across the globe in locations in Africa, Asia, North and South America, Europe and Oceania.

Highlights inside the airport also include numerous art-works by international artists.
