(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and senior officials held a high-level meeting with Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, Akbar Al Baker, to discuss new trade, business and investment opportunities in Miami recently.

Qatar Airways, a member of the oneworld Alliance, began the four-times-weekly service to Miami on June 10, between Miami International Airport and the newly opened Hamad International Airport, in Doha.

The airline's CEO was on-board the maiden flight and led a delegation, including the Director of Miami Airport, Emilio Gonzalez; the Vice Chairman of the Greater Miami Visitors and Convention Bureau, senior officials from the airline and also a group of international media.

During the visit, Al Baker said that the airline planned to bring new opportunities to Miami by investing in the community and helping boost trade, tourism and business links between Qatar and Miami.

"Qatar Airways is looking forward to how this new route will enhance our excellent offering to passengers, providing even greater flexibility in the number of US gateways to choose from, since we now fly out of six major hubs in the country," said Al Baker. "Miami has always been a global city; a crossroads of commerce, art and culture. Mayor Gimenez has been a great ally in our efforts to bring Qatar Airways to Miami and we are proud to offer an additional boost to the local economy."

Mayor Gimenez also expressed his enthusiasm for the new partnership between Qatar Airways and Miami, along with the airline's plans to bring new jobs and visitors to the city.

Miami International Airport is now Qatar Airways' sixth gateway in the United States and is responsible for over 20 million international passengers each year. Qatar Airways will fly four round-trip routes each week between Doha and Miami.

"Qatar Airways' membership in the oneworld alliance will allow the Miami gateway to also serve connecting flights from destinations throughout the American southeast and South America. Qatar Airways looks forward to building a strong relationship between Miami and Doha," added Al Baker.

"These two great cities have so much to share and learn from one another. We can now look forward to introducing many more US travellers to Doha and developing a strong conduit for trade and commerce, via our award-winning World's Best Business Class," the Qatar Airways CEO said.

Qatar Airways offers travellers from Miami an exciting network of destinations to fly to, including cities across Africa, Asia, and the Middle East via its Doha hub.

The airline operates a modern fleet of 134 aircraft to 142 destinations globally, including destinations in Europe and South America.
