The multiple award-winning airline group reported historic net profits of QAR6.1 billion (USD1.7 billion) during the 2023/24 fiscal year, with total revenue of QAR81 billion (USD22.2 billion). This represents an increase of QAR4.7 billion (US$1.3 billion) – up 6% compared to last year.

The Group generated a strong EBITDA margin of 24% at QAR19.1 billion (USD5.2 billion), around QAR1.2 billion (USD0.3 billion) higher than the previous year. This reflects the business’s continued focus on customer experience, innovation, digitalisation, and sustainability, resulting in streamlined, agile, and fit-for-purpose operations across all areas.

This has created a strong platform for the future of the Group’s airline business, which carried more than 40 million passengers during the 2023/24 fiscal year, an increase of 26% over the previous year.
