Earlier this year Qatar Airways unveiled one of its B777 aircraft painted in a special retro livery, as part of the carrier’s 25th anniversary celebrations.

The airline in fact began operations in early 1994, but considers 2022 to be its 25th birthday as the carrier was relaunched in 1997 under the mandate of His Highness The Father Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. Flights to London also commenced that year.
