(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar Airways concluded its successful participation at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM), the leading travel trade exhibition in Dubai last week.

The airline participated with a large delegation from Qatar, where it showcased its recent milestones and award-winning five-star service and hospitality at the airline's brand new exhibition stand.

The stand witnessed an overwhelming welcome from ATM's visitors, where it included a display of the new luxury First Class seats that will form part of the A380-800 aircraft's tri-class configuration.

The participation started with a press conference hosted by Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Al Baker provided the regional and international media with an update on the newly opened Hamad International Airport and the airline's highly anticipated arrival of its first Airbus A380-800 in early June, the first of 13 such aircraft on order.

Hundreds of visitors tried out the new A380 First Class seat at ATM Dubai.

Qatar Airways' stand also welcomed during the exhibition's first day by Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, in addition to a large number of international and regional industry leaders from the travel and hospitality sectors.

Qatar Airways' participation at Arabian Travel Market yet again proved a show-stopper with the airline celebrating its imminent launch of flights to its sixth and seventh destinations in the US new routes to Miami from 10 June and Dallas/Fort Worth from 1 July 2014 with Miami-styled Salsa entertainment and rope tricks courtesy of a local cowboy from Dallas.

The stand also received some character mascots from KidZania, the award-winning children's city concept with which Qatar Airways has partnered in Kuwait.

Qatar Airways was also present at the Business Traveller Middle East Awards 2014, and won the best regional airline serving the Middle East award.

Concluding the successful participation, Al Baker said: "We are delighted with the outcome of our participation at the Arabian Travel Market, where we updated the global travel, tourism and hospitality industries about our major current achievements and reinforced the airline's leading global position."
