A spokesperson for Qatar Airways confirmed the news with Campaign Asia-Pacific. He noted that the agency’s primary task is to strengthen the brand's reputation as a premium five-star carrier by working closely with the airline's offices in both Singapore and Malaysia to execute an integrated communications strategy.

The brand managed communications duties in-house previously, according to sources.
