During the 2018 U.S. Tour, FC Bayern München will compete against Italian football club Juventus Turin in Philadelphia on 25 July 2018 and will face off against English football champions Manchester City in Miami on 28 July 2018.
Earlier this month, the award-winning airline became an FC Bayern platinum partner under a new long-term sponsorship agreement. The deal between Qatar Airways and FC Bayern München will see the airline’s signature logo adorning the jersey sleeves of the German record champion, further strengthening the already strong ties between the airline and Germany.
Qatar Airways is the global launch customer for the state-of-the-art A350-1000 aircraft, the latest member of the Airbus wide-body aircraft portfolio, which currently operates daily non-stop service between Doha and London. Beginning commercial operations in February 2018, the A350-1000 offers a total of 327 seats across two cabins, with 46 award-winning Qsuite Business Class seats and 281 18-inch extra wide Economy Class seats. The aircraft offers enhanced levels of passenger comfort, thanks to the lowest twin-engine noise level of any aircraft, advanced air conditioning technology and full LED mood lighting.
Like the A350-900, more than 70 per cent of the A350-1000’s lightweight airframe is made from advanced materials combining composites (53 per cent), titanium and advanced aluminum alloys. The aircraft’s carbon fibre reinforced plastic fuselage results in lower fuel burn, as well as easier maintenance. The A350-1000 also features a distinctive all-new, six-wheel main landing gear and four per cent larger wings.
