DOHA, Qatar, 2018-Dec-19 — /Travel PR News/ — Qatar Airways is delighted to celebrate Qatar National Day in the skies by providing a variety of limited edition items on board and special discounts on tickets. The on-board offerings includes custom-designed Nappa Dori amenity kits, a special Qatar National Day menu, as well as postcards featuring photos of Qatar.
Artisan brand Nappa Dori has created bespoke kits featuring images from destinations around the world served by Qatar Airways. In honour of Qatar National Day, the custom-made amenity kits will feature images of popular sites in Qatar, such as Soug Waqif and traditional Dhow boats lining Doha’s Corniche.
Special award-winning desserts will be offered in both Premium and Economy Class cabins on all flights operated on Qatar National Day. First Class customers will be offered Mejdool halwa, a dessert prepared in fine layers using Qatari Mejdool dates, pistachios and other flavours inspired by the region. Passengers in both Business and Economy Class will be pleasantly surprised by the modern twist on a classic dessert: Basbousa with orange sauce and saffron clotted cream.
Special postcards will also be offered on all outbound flights operated on Qatar National Day, featuring images influenced by local culture and popular sites in Qatar.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Marketing and Corporate Communications, Ms. Salam Al Shawa, said: “As the national carrier of the State of Qatar, we are delighted to bring the celebration of Qatar National Day on board our aircraft.
