Qatar Airways participated at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum

Qatar Airways concluded a productive participation at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), that was held under the patronage of the Russian President Mr. Vladimir Putin and attended by key opinion leaders from around the world. Being the largest investment and economy-focused event of its kind in the world featuring the State of Qatar as the guest country, Qatar Airways impressed participants with its world-class product and hospitality and signed several agreements with key Russian companies.

During the Forum, H.E. Mr. Akbar Al Baker also met with Mr. Alexander Beglov, Governor of St. Petersburg, and Mr. Maxim Sokolov, Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg, to discuss opportunities to further expand the bilateral relations between the State of Qatar and the Russian Federation in terms of Tourism and Air Transport.

As part of its commitment to the Russian market, the airline signed several MOU agreements with significant Russian-based entities including, Volga-Dnepr and Pulkovo Airport. The signing ceremonies were conducted with Mr. Alexey Isaikin, Board of Directors of Volga-Dnepr, and Mr. Leonid Sergeev, CEO of Pulkovo Airport respectively.

Qatar Airways exhibited its patented award-winning Business Class product, the Qsuite, featuring the industry’s first-ever double bed in Business Class. Visitors of the Qatar Airways stand got a chance to experience the unparalleled level of comfort they could expect in the skies when they travel on board the award-winning airline.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “The Qatari participation in the Forum as the guest country this year demonstrates the strong commitment to the global and economic development of both countries. Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF), organised by Roscongress Foundation, ensured visitors followed the highest levels of safety standards and we were honoured to be part of this significant event, making our mark with key entities and further committing to the Russian market and beyond.

“Qatar Airways is proud to be among the key drivers of trade between the State of Qatar and the Russian Federation, as demonstrated by our ongoing commitment to the Russian market throughout the years.
