(Summary of Qatar Airways' CEO statements)

Qatar Airways Privatisation

Qatar Airways plans to be privatised by 2005. The airline was originally a private venture but the government decided to take a 45% stake in 1999 which later expanded to 50%.
The CEO has said that the airline will have an IPO (Initial Public Offering) at around 2005. The airlines stocks will be traded publicly in the London Stock Exchange and the Doha Stock Exchange.
The airline is currently financially strong and is experiencing high load factors and so the IPO is very eagerly anticipated by the public.
