Qatar Airways’ ‘No Borders, Only Horizons’ becomes Top Viral Video Worldwide


Qatar Airways has received tremendous support globally for its recently-launched television and social media commercial titled ‘No Borders, Only Horizons’, which has been viewed by more than 54 million viewers worldwide, making it the top viral video during the last week of June.

The campaign, launched across the airline’s social media channels, was listed as the top viral video after gaining more than 54 million views. The commercial was viewed more than 50 million times on the airline’s Facebook page, with nearly 800,000 views on Twitter, more than three million views on Instagram and more than one million views on Youtube.

The success of the commercial comes from its expression of the airline’s firm belief in the idea that travel goes beyond borders and prejudice, and that it is a necessity and right for all to explore this world that we live in.

The blockade on the State of Qatar initiated on 5 June stripped Qatar Airways of the rights granted to it as an international airline. Nonetheless, our focus is on ensuring that we continue to serve our passengers by delivering the award-winning service which we are renowned for.”

The campaign highlights the common ground Qatar Airways shares with thousands of its supporters from all parts of the world, which affirms the belief that the sky has no limits. The ‘No Borders, Only Horizons’ campaign promotes the airline’s core philosophy: that the world is a better place when we explore it together.

The commercial captured the global media spotlight last week, making headlines in prominent media outlets worldwide, including Bloomberg and CNN.
