Qatar Airways is thrilled to have won four prestigious awards at this year’s 2018 Skytrax World Airline Awards. The multi award-winning airline has once again been named ‘World’s Best Business Class’ at this year’s awards ceremony, held today at the Langham Hotel in London. This is the sixth time and third consecutive year that the airline has won this recognition. Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker was at the awards to receive the accolades alongside Hamad International Airport Chief Operating Officer Engr. Badr Mohammed Al Meer.
In addition to being voted ‘World’s Best Business Class’ by travellers from around the world, the airline was also named ‘Best Airline In The Middle East’, the seventh time it has received this tremendous accolade. Qatar Airways was also named ‘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.
Qsuite, a patented Qatar Airways product, offers a First Class experience in the Business Class cabin. Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed in Business Class, as well as privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room, a first of its kind in the industry. Qatar Airways proudly launched Qsuite at ITB Berlin in March 2017 to outstanding global acclaim, and has set a new standard for luxury travel with this innovative product. These awards demonstrate the quality of Qatar Airways’ unrivalled level of service, and prove that the airline continues to win the confidence of the travelling public.
