Race Pits Qatar Airways Aircraft Against Formula E Race Car

Qatar Airways has released an exclusive video of a head-to-head race between a Formula E Spark SRT-01E race car and the airline’s latest generation Boeing B787 Dreamliner and Airbus A350 aircraft.

According to the flag carrier, the race took place at its home and hub, Hamad International Airport, to celebrate its partnership with the electric street racing series.

The video first shows a contest between the Airbus A350 upon takeoff alongside the latest-generation electronic Forumla E series race car, driven by Formula E and DRAGON driver Jerome D’Ambrosio. This is swiftly followed by a second race as a Boeing B787 Dreamliner touches down at the airport.

“Qatar Airways strives to always be ahead of the curve when it comes to its environmental credentials and flying one of the most modern fleets in the sky,” added Akbar Al Baker, group CEO, Qatar Airways.

“For our sporting partnerships, this is as important to us when represented as a sponsor, which is why we have chosen the future of motor racing and Formula E with their latest environmentally friendly technology, which they combine into this exciting sport.”
