Qatar Airways has completed the migration of its primary IT infrastructure to Qtel's data centre.

The move, part of the airline's strategic technology partnership with Qtel, will give Qatar Airways an optimal environment for its IT and provide maximum availability and stability.

The Doha data centre is a state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility with connectivity to advanced data networks, which will help support Qatar Airways ongoing expansion plans.

The next stage in the relationship will see Qatar Airways move its disaster recovery infrastructure to a new Qtel facility, which will be constructed solely for Qatar Airways.

Qtel was selected as Qatar Airways primary technology partner in 2008, and the pair have a 15 year agreement to co-operate on IT infrastructure and platform sourcing and maintenance, customer contact centres, connectivity and managed services.

Dr Nasser Marafih, CEO of Qtel said: "Much has been written about how Qatar Airways changed the game in the airline industry. Now Qatar Airways has enlisted the full range of Qtel's IT and communication solutions to help take its business to an even higher level. Our solutions will harness the power of IT to become an enabler for Qatar Airways business."

Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways commented: "By investing in the world's best infrastructure backbone supported by a leading Qatari partner, Qatar Airways is ensuring that we have the foundations for the further growth and development of our services. With Qtel's support, we have successfully migrated our primary IT infrastructure to this new facility and can reap the full benefits of enhanced capacity and improved reliability."
