Qatar Airways continues to soar high, winning four Skytrax Airline Awards

By QLNews

Despite the ongoing, year-long illegal siege, Qatar Airways continues to reach greater heights. It has won four prestigious awards at this year’s 2018 Skytrax World Airline Awards in London. 

The multi award-winning airline was once again named as the ‘World’s Best Business Class’ at this year’s awards, held on Tuesday at the Langham Hotel in London, reported Gulf Times.

This is the sixth time and third consecutive year that the airline has won this recognition. In addition to it, Qatar Airways was also named, for the fifth consecutive year, ‘Best Airline in the Middle East.’

Qatar Airways also won the award for ‘Best First Class Airline Lounge’ for the second consecutive year and ‘Best Business Class Seat’, in recognition of its ground-breaking business class experience, Qsuite.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker was at hand to receive the accolades alongside Hamad International Airport Chief Operating Officer Engr. Badr Mohammed Al Meer.

“These prestigious awards show how far Qatar Airways has come in such a short time. In just over 20 years, we’ve risen from a small regional carrier to become a global airline, committed to innovation and to delivering the highest standards to our passengers,” said Al Baker.

“To have been awarded such accolades, in spite of the illegal blockade against our country, is a reflection of our commitment to excellence, innovation and to providing all passengers the finest service in the skies,” he added.

Qatar Airways also made headline news this week at the Farnborough International Airshow 2018, with a number of high-profile announcements.

Qatar Airways had been chosen by Skytrax as the ‘World’s Best Airlines’ in 2017.
