Qatar Airways celebrates inaugural E-Prix in Rome
DOHA: After expanding its highly-successful sponsorship of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship earlier this year, Qatar Airways this weekend celebrated its partnership in Rome where the airline was represented as the Official Airline Partner of the 2018 CBMM Niobium Rome E-Prix presented by Mercedes EQ, held on Saturday.
After much anticipation, the CBMM Niobium Rome E-Prix presented by Mercedes EQ arrived on the city’s streets last week with a 1.76 mile track between Cristoforo Colombo and the Palazzo dei Congressi.
As Official Airline Partner, Qatar Airways hosted a lounge inside the Allianz E-Village, where families and sport enthusiasts were able to take part in a variety of activities, including a photo booth with fun pictures to share on their social media channels and other competitions.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “After an exciting Formula E season last year, Qatar Airways is delighted to have renewed our partnership not only as title sponsors for the E-Prix in Paris and New York, but also as Official Airline Partner to the Rome and Berlin events”.
