The World: Qatar - Broadcaster and airline sign ad and sponsorship deal

Qatar Airways, the national airline for the state of Qatar, has secured a nine-month sponsorship and advertising deal with CNBC, the business news broadcaster.

The airline will run campaigns across CNBC's networks in EMEA, Asia and the US, which build upon the brand's successful 2008 sponsorship of Worldwide Exchange, CNBC's global daily business news programme.

Al Baker, the chief executive of Qatar Airways, said: "Working with CNBC provides Qatar Airways with an additional avenue to access a growing audience of influential executives with international business interests."
