Qatar Airways going to boost workforce amidst FIFA 2022 World Cup preparations

 Tuesday, October 18, 2022 


Qatar’s national airline Qatar Airways announced that the airline company is set on boosting its workforce by 10,000 to handle the influx of passengers flying into Doha for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

According to an anonymous spokesperson, Qatar Airways will increase its workforce from 45,000 to over 55,000. The expansion also falls under a broader post-pandemic strategy.

During the height of the pandemic in 2020, Qatar Airways drastically cut the size of its workforce to below 37,000, with its destinations also taking a hit and being reduced to only 33 cities.

An estimated 1.2 million visitors will be heading to Qatar for this year’s World Cup, causing concern surrounding the nation’s airport capacity. The extra traffic is expected to put pressure on Hamad International Airport (HIA), Qatar’s broader infrastructure and hospitality sectors.
