Hi All,

Is there some sort of list for the names that Qatar Airways has named their jets?

As seen in the above photo each name is in arabic. I was just wondering if there was a list with their english names available.

Lots of the fleet have their names listed in this database, unfortunately the aircraft you pictured (A7-BBI), doesn't have its name listed.

Air New Zealand; first to fly the Boeing 787-9. ZK-NZE, NZ103 AKL-SYD, 2014/08/09. I was 83rd to board.

Thanks zkojq,

But unfortunately not many of their 777s had names listed on the site

There's a nice guy on this site with the username QatarA340 and I was sending him pics of the 777s as they delivered from PAE and getting him translate them into English for me, then I passed that info on to sites like planespotters and Aviation Letter mag. Only really 'decoded' a small portion of their fleet thus far but if you can find clear pics of the Arabic names for the other ones I am sure Mr. QatarA340 will happily oblige.  

Talking of aircraft names in foreign languages, I believe that all Shenzhen Airlines' fleet have names, but they're all in Chinese.

I don't think all of their aircraft have name. I'll leave translating this to our Arabic speakers. I do know that A7-BBB was named "Gaza" in response to LY naming 4X-ECE "Sderot"

YOWza



12A whenever possible.

Almost all the names are of areas in Doha or Qatar.

Roughly translated it says: Jowa Al Salamah, its an area in Qatar, I think.

My Arabic is not great QatarA340 can give you a better translation and a brief history of the place I'm sure.

It was called Gaza in responce to the war on Gaza and the massive humanitarian crisis that followed.

Jowa Al Salamah

It means Air of Peace; I dont think its an area in Qatar. After all, they have more than 100 aircraft; surely theyre bound to run out of names!

I used to like the practice by Egyptair, of naming their airliners after Pharoahs, or Egyptian places of interest. Since the change to the newer livery, this is no longer the case.

I hadn't heard of this area before, but according to this Arabic forum, Jow Al-Salamah is indeed an area in Qatar:

On a side note, flying on QR between DOH and IAH during the past couple of years has made me fond of the 777-200LR. Quite an awesome aircraft. 



Follow your dream.

I like the way that Air Lingus has the plane's name written in Gaelic on the left side of the aircraft and in English on the right side.

Also KLM. Dutch on one side. English on the other.

Lots of airlines do that: Aeroflot, Thai, Olympic (when they were still alive), Royal Jordanian,... but not Qatar.

You will find quite a number of Qatar's ac names in Air Britain Airline Fleets which you have to purchase.
