Qatar Postal Services Issues Four Commemorative Stamps for Qatar Airways Anniversary

29 Nov 2017  Wed

Qatar Airways in partnership with Qatar Postal Service Company continues its ongoing celebrations of its 20th anniversary with four unique commemorative postage stamps.

On 30th November, the stamps are set to be on sale and will serve as a historic milestone of Qatar Airways’ world-class achievements throughout the last two decades.

Qatar Airways’ new limited-edition stamp collection consists of four unique designs following a timeline of some of the airline’s many accomplishments.

The first stamp is in honour of Qatar Airways achieving a 50-strong fleet of aircraft in 2006, and the second stamp celebrates the airline, adding its 100th destination to its global route map in 2011. The third one showcases Qatar Airways becoming the Global Launch Customer of the world’s first Airbus A350-900 and the fourth stamp pays tribute to two of the airline’s latest successes in 2017: reaching its 20th year anniversary and being awarded ‘Airline of the Year’ for the fourth time by Skytrax.

Qatar Post produced a total of 160,000 stamps, which will be sold for QR5 each to the general public.

Established in 1950, the Qatar Post is the national provider of postal services in Qatar. The company has 29 branches across the country and is handling all domestic and international operations, including e-Government postal services. However, these four stamps only depict a few achievements by Qatar Airways in the span of 20 years.

The award-winning airline has received scores of accolades, this year including ‘Airline of the Year’ by the prestigious 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards for a fourth winning time.
