Qatar CEO Akbar Al Baker announces his departure from the airline

Long-standing Qatar Airways Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, will step down from his role.

Akbar Al Baker To Depart

Qatar Airways announced that after a remarkable 27 years of service, Al Baker will leave the group effective 5 November 2023.

27 Years Of Service

Since the appointment, the group and, notably, mainline carriers have grown so significantly that they’re now recognised globally.

Trusted by brands and customers and known for high service and standards.

Qatar Airways has grown its hub in Doha and connected regions worldwide thanks to a commitment to growth.

During the global pandemic, Qatar Airways won the hearts of many; instead of pulling flights, continuing them.

By continuing flights during the most challenging times the industry had seen citizens stranded away from home, they could return to loved ones when their national carriers abandoned them.

Akbar Al Baker has been known for his outspoken nature throughout the decades. However, his business handling made his insight into critical decisions invaluable.

Throughout his tenure, Akbar wasn’t afraid to speak, share his thoughts, and explain critical decisions behind the scenes.

Looking Ahead

Qatar Airwways says that Engr. Badr Mohammed Al-Meer will succeed Akbar Al Baker from 5 November 2023.
