The popular event, which is now in its 10th year, is designed to encourage aviation enthusiasts and families from across the region to visit Qatar, and see the range of planes and aviation technology available. 

This year, the event will take place from February 9 to 10 2018, and is expected to draw large crowds from across Qatar, due to its family-friendly activities.  The Al Khor Fly-In will take place at Al Khor Airport and visitors can see a range of light aircraft on display, as well as interact with the pilots. 

The event will be open to the public from 8am to 5.30pm and entrance will be free of charge.

As part of its sponsorship, Ooredoo will host a booth at the event, offering information and services, such as Mobile Money, Hala Top-Ups and more.

Talking about the event, Manar Khalifa Al Muraikhi, Director of PR and Corporate Communications, Ooredoo Qatar, said: “The Al Khor Fly-In is a great family day out and a perfect way to interest your young ones in the field of aviation. 

“As well as a host of aircraft on display, you’ll be able to interact with the pilots and find out more about the possibilities of learning to fly in Qatar. We’re proud to once again be supporting such a diverse community event and hope everyone enjoys it”.
