Qatar joins oneworld
Qatar Airways is expected to take delivery of the new Airbus A350 next year, and place another order with Airbus next month.
The airline also became the only major Gulf carrier to join a global alliance when it officially joined the oneworld alliance just one year after receiving its membership invitation.
To further encourage travellers to fly Qatar Airways, the oneworld alliance has recently launched a new Visit Middle East pass.
Qatar Airways 'Privilege Club' frequent flyers will receive double Qmiles when flying on Qatar's oneworld partner airlines between Nov 15 and Jan 31, 2014, subject to conditions.
