Qatar Airways has appointed 180 Kingsday as its global creative agency following a highly competitive tender process.
Over the coming months, 180 Kingsday will work on 360 brand campaigns for Qatar Airways including work on its official partnership with FIFA and upcoming associated events, including the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.
