Year of the Tiger marked on Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways is noting the Lunar New Year with a special curated selection of festive treats and decorations onboard and in lounges, and traditional ‘hóngbāo’ red envelopes for all passengers traveling between January 31 and February 1.
Celebrations will extend to passengers at Al Safwa First and Al Mourjan Business Lounge at Hamad International Airport (HIA) where they can enjoy a reunion dinner and sample traditional celebratory dishes from the bespoke Lunar New Year menu.
All passengers traveling on Qatar Airways to and from China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore can enjoy a range of celebratory dishes and treats. Passengers on the selected routes will be welcomed with a ‘hóngbāo’ red envelope containing a complimentary wi-fi code. Passengers transiting through Doha will receive an exclusive 22 percent Qatar Duty Free (QDF) discount when shopping from a selection of perfumes, cosmetics and skincare at the QDF Perfumes and Cosmetics Stores.
Premium Cabin passengers can start their reunion celebrations onboard with a Golden Mandarin Mule mocktail drink. They can then enjoy special dishes from a bespoke à la carte menu that includes Peking duck roll for appetizers, stir fried noodles with tiger prawns as the main course and beef cheek with vegetable fried rice as a light option. For dessert, passengers can indulge in a traditional Mandarin mousse – the Mandarin orange is traditionally a symbol of prosperity. The dishes will be presented with red lanterns on the dining table and complemented with a Chinese knot tassel and a red band.
Passengers traveling in the Economy Class cabin during this period can select a meal from the ‘Lunar New Year’ digital menu that includes green tea soba salad for appetizers, sweet and sour hicken with vegetable fried rice as the main course and tofu cheese mousse with red sesame crumble for dessert, presented on a themed tray mat along with chopsticks and a red cutlery band that symbolizes prosperity and good fortune.
Celebrations continue at Qatar Airways lounges at HIA. Al Safwa First Class Lounge and Al Mourjan Business Class Lounge passengers will enjoy dining on hot and sour chicken soup, Sichuan style beef short ribs with vegetable fried rice, finishing off with a black sesame baked cheesecake. Tables will be dressed with specially designed red lanterns, chopsticks and Chinese knot tassel.
