Movenpick Hotel Qassim signs deal with Qatar Airways

Movenpick Hotel Qassim has signed a preferred hotel agreement with Qatar Airways.
As a result of the agreement, the five-star hotel will benefit from inflight announcements on every Qatar Airways flight arriving at destinations within Saudi Arabia.
Additionally, the airline’s official website will list the 159-room Movenpick Hotel Qassim as a preferred hotel.
Movenpick Hotel Qassim is only 30 minutes’ drive from the regional Qassim Airport and is situated at the junction of King Fahad Road and King Khaled Road in Buraydah.
The Al-Qassim district is known as Saudi Arabia’s food provider due to the area’s heritage of agriculture and Movenpick Hotel Qassim is the only upscale hotel in the vicinity.
“We are delighted to enter into this agreement with Qatar Airways in a move which is extremely positive for awareness of the destination as well,” said Toufic Tamim, vice president sales and marketing for the Middle East.
“This is our second property in Saudi Arabia to partner with Qatar Airways, following an earlier agreement relating to Movenpick Hotel Alkhobar in the country’s Eastern Province,” he added.
The hotel features a contemporary art deco design and caters for business travelers and families.
A sky-blue glass dome that welcomes the desert sun and the early evening glow is another prominent characteristic of the hotel.
Most notably however, is Movenpick Hotel Qassim’s commitment to stand out as one of the most environmentally friendly hotels in the Kingdom.
The property maintains its efforts in this respect by adhering to a set of ‘green standards’ and responsible operating procedures.
Qatar Airways, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, has seen rapid growth in just 15 years of operations.
The company’s Preferred Hotel Program is a prestigious platform that highlights hotels of exceptional quality.
