Dhaka: Qatar Airways has signed a corporate deal with the University of Dhaka at a simple ceremony on Wednesday at the Vice-chancellor’s office. The Agreement was signed by Prof. Kamal Uddin, Treasurer of DU and Bakhshi Mohd. Tayab Sales Manager, Qatar Airways. Prof. A.A.M.S. Arefin Siddiqui, Vice Chancellor, Prof. Shibli Rubayat ul Islam, Dean, Faculty of Business studies and a number Faculty Members of DU were present among others, on the occasion.
Under the deal, Faculty members, staff, students and Alumni of the University of Dhaka, along with their family members will enjoy special fares for their travels to various QR destinations worldwide.
Speaking on the occasion Prof. Arefin Siddiqui thanked Qatar Airways for their good gestures to the University of Dhaka and hoped that this would greatly benefit, specially the teachers and students of the University, in their quest for higher education and for attending various international conferences and seminars. He urged upon the Airline to consider providing few complimentary tickets to the students, who sometime fail to attend various international competitions and other academic activities, due to shortage of financial supports.
Prof. Shibli Rubayat ul Islam, speaking on the occasion said, travel to various international destinations from the University of Dhaka is growing considerably in the recent time as the DU is now entering into various exchange and co-operation programs with different Universities worldwide and we will continue to expand our such co-operations in the days ahead. This kind of special offers by Qatar Airways will certainly support these programs and help us expand our programs in future, he said, urging Qatar Airways to offer us some competitive fares for Group travels, when such group travel takes place.
Thanking the University of Dhaka, specially the Vice Chancellor Prof. Arefin Siddiqui and Prof. Shibli Rubayat ul Islam for signing the corporate deal with Qatar Airways, Bakshi Tayab assured that the Airline will always consider the Dhaka University as a very special client and try to extend all kinds of support and co-operations towards their travel needs.
