Qatar Airways teams with MIA to debut FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ aircraft

On July 20, 2021, Qatar Airways celebrated the start of daily flights at Miami International Airport (MIA) and the airline’s new partnership with Concacaf (the Confederation of North, Central America ­­­­­­­and Caribbean Football Association) by bringing its B777-300ER FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ aircraft to MIA. The global gateway was the first U.S. airport to welcome the custom-branded aircraft, which commemorates the World Cup being hosted in Qatar next year.

Qatar Airways kicked off its multi-year agreement with Concacaf as the Official Airline for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup, taking place from July 2 to August 1. The Qatar National Football Team is participating as a guest nation in the tournament.

As the flagship international men’s football tournament of the region, the Concacaf Gold Cup kicked off in Miami with the preliminary round on July 2. Haiti, Guadeloupe and Trinidad and Tobago were the three winners of the round.

The Gold Cup final is set to be held in Las Vegas on August 1, where the Concacaf regional champion will be crowned. The 16th edition of the competition is being played in 11 stadiums across eight U.S. metropolitan areas.
