Qatar Airways To Hire 10,000 New Staff Amid FIFA World Cup 2022 Preparations

Qatar Airways has announced that it will increase its workforce by 10,000 in order to deal with the influx of passengers arriving in Doha for the FIFA World Cup 2022. This is in line with a wider post-pandemic expansion.

A spokesperson for the Doha-based carrier said that it is currently in the middle of a recruitment drive to increase its workforce to over 55,000. Currently, it has 45,000 employees.

“Qatar Airways has been on a growth path following COVID, and with World Cup preparations underway it is ramping-up recruitment across the airline,” the company stated in a statement to Reuters.

The airline did not say how many of these new positions would be permanent. After reducing its number of destinations to 33 during the peak of the pandemic in 2019, it cut staff to less than 37,000 by 2021. Since then, it has increased its operations to more than 150 locations.

FIFA World Cup 2022 – Qatar Airways Recruitment

According to a spokesperson, recruitment events were held in India, the Philippines, and other countries at September’s end.

It is unclear how many new staff members will be available when the World Cup begins on Nov. 20, in Qatar, the first Middle East country hosting soccer’s major event.

Qatar Airways will adjust 70% of its schedule during the tournament to accommodate additional flights to Doha. Other flights will be canceled and frequencies reduced to meet fan demand.

Qatar Airways has opened a new airport to accommodate the event and will be able to increase its flights significantly.

“It will prove difficult to be able to manage this very fast-moving demand from very large numbers of spectators,” Akbar al-Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways, told reporters earlier this summer.

Tiny Qatar is facing a wide staff shortage as it prepares for an estimated 1.2million visitors during the month-long World Cup. This will put pressure on its infrastructure and hospitality sectors.
