Qatar Airways is the Official Airline Partner for the Qatar-India Year of Culture 2019, marking the beginning of a year-long collaboration that will see both nations celebrate their cultures.
The Qatar-India Year of Culture 2019 will invite audiences in both Qatar and India to explore their cultural heritage through an exciting array of programmes, including a variety of Qatari-Indian exhibitions, musical performances, fashion, film and artistic events.
As the Official Airline, Qatar Airways will be the bridge between both countries by bringing more travellers from India to Doha, so that they can experience Qatar’s incredible hospitality and cultural heritage throughout the year.
The Year of Culture programme has continued to grow each passing year, with the Qatar-Russia Year of Culture 2018 programme being the largest cultural collaboration to date.
