REUTERS reported on 13 October 2022 that Qatar Airways is looking to hire at least 10,000 staff as part of World Cup 2022 preparations.

The airline is looking to take its workforce to more than 55,000 from its current number of 45,000.

To facilitate the hiring, various recruitment events have been taking place across countries like Philippines, India and others.
