The show comes amid efforts to bolster UK ties with Gulf nations.
“This historic Red Arrows tour will be a visible demonstration of UK engagement across the globe, flying the flag to promote Britain in important capitals through the GREAT campaign,” UK’s Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon said in a statement on the MoD website.
Officially formed in 1964, they have performed over 4,700 shows in 56 countries worldwide.
The Reds last visited Qatar in 2013, where their daring maneuvers trailed by red, white and blue smoke wowed crowd lined up along the Corniche.
They can be seen coloring the Doha sky with their Hawk T1A aircrafts in the video below.
