In a press statement released, the airlines has stated that 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

The statement further reads,” 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.”
