Qatar Airways kicks off Atlanta summer reading program

Qatar Airways has partnered with Atlanta Public Schools to kick off a “School´s Out, Reading Is In” summer reading program by offering 500 students with their first book for the summer, the company said.

Qatar Airways cabin crew and staff from the Americas office visited APS´ Heritage Academy to gift the books and share stories with elementary students on how important reading–and travelling–is to expanding personal horizons.

The summer reading programme inspires students to maintain their academic progress through the summer holiday by providing each student from K-5 grades with books, grade-appropriate. Qatar Airways is partnering with APS to support this endeavor, and to further inspire students to explore the world through reading.

Qatar Airways serves thousands of young passengers each day, en route to over 150 destinations around the world. As part of the airline´s award-winning inflight service, every aircraft is equipped with entertainment systems, such as interactive games and educational programs, designed for younger audiences and even toddlers. Baby TV, a new feature on board most flights, helps sooth and relax the world´s youngest travelers, on overnight flights.

Qatar Airways, the national carrier of the State of Qatar, is in its 19th year of operations, and has a modern fleet of 184 aircraft flying to more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across six continents.
