Qatar Airways won four prestigious titles at the 2023 World Airline Awards, held in the iconic Air and Space Museum at the Paris Air Show on Tuesday.

Qatar Airways continued its domination in business class travel, winning the titles for World’s Best Business Class, World’s Best Business Class Seat, World’s Best Business Class Lounge (the Al Mourjan lounge at Hamad International Airport) and the World’s Best Business Class Lounge Dining.

Qatar Airways was also honoured with the title of Best Airline in the Middle East for the eleventh time in the awards’ history.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker and HIA Chief Operating Officer Eng Badr Mohammed Al Meer received the awards.

“Qatar Airways is delighted to win the World’s Best Business Class award at this year’s Skytrax World Airline Awards. This is testimony to the collective endeavour in the airline that enables us to deliver an unsurpassed customer experience. Three other awards for Best Airline in the Middle East, World's Best Business Class Lounge and World's Best Business Class Lounge Dining illustrate Qatar Airways’ leadership in the sector, as well as its high degree of innovation and commitment,” said Al baker, after receiving the recognitions.

Qatar Airways finished as the second-best Airline in the world, after Singapore Airlines. They also came in sixth spot in the ‘World's Best Cabin Staff’ and third in the ‘World's Cleanest Airlines’ categories.

"Qatar Airways is a very firm favourite amongst customers and winning these top awards in 2023 demonstrates that their Business Class, both onboard flights and in the airports, stands out well above their competitors. Qatar Airways gained a very close second-place finish in the overall global rating, ensuring that Qatar Airways again scooped the award as the Best Airline in the Middle East for 2023 for an eleventh time,” said Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted.

More than 350 guests attended the event from airlines across the world, with a large number of airline CEOs, presidents and senior management present to accept the awards.
