What a game last night!  In front of 50,000 cheering football fans, the Thailand National Football Team played an impressive game but they couldn’t out manoeuvre FC Barcelona in a match  that ended to the visitor advantage. Today the team flies to Malaysia where they will be making their first ever appearance.

FCB players Andrés Iniesta and Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior met with avid Barca fans, including the winner of the Qatar Airways FC Barcelona Facebook competition Ahmed Al Ali, in a private Meet & Greet back at the team’s hotel.

Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 16 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 127 aircraft to 128 key business and leisure destinations worldwide. Qatar Airways has so far launched six destinations this year – Gassim (Saudi Arabia), Najaf (Iraq), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), Chicago (USA), Salalah (Oman) and Basra (Iraq).

Over the next few months, the network will expand with the addition of further destinations – Sulaymaniyah, Iraq (August 20), Chengdu, China (September 3), Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (September 18), Clark International Airport, Philippines (October 27) and Philadelphia, USA (2 April 2014).
