Qatar Airways supporting the Mediterranean Stars Festival
The Radio Italia Live Concert to take place in Malta on October 4, 2019
Qatar Airways, the multiple award-winning airline, is proudly supporting the Mediterranean Stars Festival being held in Malta on October 4, 2019 and expected to attract an audience of thousands.
The event is a chance for the airline to grow closer cultural ties to the island following the launch of services from Doha to Malta earlier this year. In fact, Qatar Airways are celebrating their 4th month anniversary of flights from Doha to Malta on October 4th.
Mate Hoffmann, Country Manager of Qatar Airways, Italy and Malta; said: “With Malta at the heart of the Mediterranean and the airline launching its Doha to Malta route a few months ago; our support emphasises our commitment in the island. We look forward to having a fantastic evening and enjoy an excellent line-up of talent as the Summer season draws to a close.”
The Mediterranean Tourism Foundation, in collaboration with international orchestra conductor Bruno Santori, created the Mediterranean Stars Festival to bring people together through music, promote peace and re-inforce a common Mediterranean identity. The festival will be co-ordinated by radio station Radio Italia and held at the iconic Granaries in Floriana, Malta. Mr Santori will be conducting the Mediterranean Orchestra which was founded in 2016 to bring together concert-standard musicians from across the region offering a repertoire ranging from classical, pop and jazz to sacred music.
In addition a number of individual artists are set to attend including Alessandra Amoroso, Gigi D’Alessio, Elisa, Francesco Gabbani, Guè Pequeno, J-Ax, Mahmood, Max Pezzali, Raf, Umberto Tozzi, and Maltese performers including Ira Losco, all backed with a 60-piece orchestra.
Qatar Airways operates an Airbus A320 aircraft on flights to Malta, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 120 seats in Economy Class. As well as enjoying the award-winning in-flight service on board, passengers travelling also have access to Oryx One, Qatar Airways’ in-flight entertainment system, offering the latest blockbuster movies, TV box sets, music, games and much more. The schedule comprises a daily service during summer season, and four flights a week in winter.
