Qatar Airways Flies Into The Hotel Business

15 March 2015

Words by AFP Relax News

The Arab country's national airline is looking to add four hotels alongside its 147-strong fleet of aircraft.

Qatar Airlines is in negotiations to buy three hotels situated in North America and in the UK. The company's chief executive Akbar Al Baker, confirmed the news during a press conference at the ITB Berlin travel and trade show.

The new acquisitions would give the flag carrier a fledgling chain of four hotels, having recently taken over the Sheraton Skyline Hotel at London's Heathrow airport.

Meanwhile the Virgin Group, which counts airlines among its many businesses, also recently opened its first Virgin Hotel in Chicago, with other locations planned for Nashville and New York.
