The smiles on the two ladies embracing says it all

Aged between 9 and 12 years, the children were from Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (For a Child’s Smile), a non-government organisation which focuses on educating orphaned children.

From visiting the cockpit to meeting the crew, the youngsters were thrilled to see the aircraft up close and personal,. The smiles continued as Qatar Airways’ cabin crew gave away special gifts onboard. Through this initiative, Qatar Airways hopes to open up the wonderful world of aviation to these children inspiring them to become the aviators of tomorrow.

The event also coincided with the celebration of Qatar Airways’ 100th flight to Cambodia’s capital city. Qatar Airways has been operating daily flights from Doha to Phnom Penh International Airport since February.
