Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, hosted a glamorous gala last night at the Ritz-Carlton to celebrate the launch of new, non-stop service from Philadelphia International Airport to Doha, connecting the Philadelphia region to Qatar Airways’ network of more than 130 destinations worldwide.

The evening began with a cocktail hour in 10 Arts, where white-gloved servers passed around delicious hors d’oeuvre and cocktails to the guests before a cirque du soleil performance. Artists entertained the crowd then led the nearly 300 guests to the ballroom below for dinner, music and the program, which ended with a surprise performance by Philly’s own Boyz II Men.
