Signed in Doha on 4th May 2015, in the company of His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar, and Mr. François Hollande, President of the French Republic, the contract represents a new milestone in the strategic partnership between Qatar and France. 

It also confirms the historical ties that have been forged with Dassault Aviation for almost 40 years.

“In a demanding geopolitical context, Qatar wants to benefit from the Rafale’s qualities in the same way as it was able to do previously with those of the Mirage F1, Alpha Jet and Mirage 2000.

"Dassault Aviation and the 500 French companies associated with the Rafale programme are honoured by this demonstration of trust”, said Eric Trappier, CEO of Dassault Aviation.
