About Air Berlin
Qatar Airways is still a young company compared to many other airlines. The airline was founded in 1993 on the initiative of the royal family Al Thani in Doha. Its base airport and hub is the Doha International Airport. The company’s successful run took a turn in 1997. This year, new management structures economically transformed and modernized the company. At this point the royal family held only 50 percent of the shares. Since then the airline has been expanding. In January 2015, it bought 9.99 per cent of the shares of the International Airlines Group, the holding company of the airlines British Airways and Iberia. According to data from 2014, airline’s network of flight routes covered 130 destinations worldwide. For fiscal year 2011, Qatar CEO Akbar Al Baker, who had not before released company figures, revealed to the publication Wirtschaftswoche that the airline had achieved a turnover of approx. five billion Euros in 2011. For fiscal year 2012 the magazine predicted a turnover of 13 billion Euros.
