All eyes on Doha airport!

In connection with the Doha Healthcare Week, an event that from tomorrow (6 November 2018), promotes health and wellbeing across Doha, Qatar Airways will host the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital at its hub. The eye clinic is a fully-equipped cargo plane with state-of-the-art medical equipment, an operating theatre and a classroom.


Every year, the aircraft visits countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America, partnering with local hospitals to deliver specialist training through its team of world-class medical volunteers, carry out treatments, and raise vital awareness about the importance of eye health.


The Orbis team will support Doha Healthcare Week, which is embedded in the World Innovation Summit for Health, by organising public and private tours inside the aircraft, as well as hosting on board workshops. (ah)
