Posted 2 November 2018 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways have been honoured with 10 new international service awards in October, including titles by four separate global industry leaders: Business Traveller, Kayak, Condé Nast Traveler and CJ Affiliate.

 

The first three awards for ‘Best Long-Haul Airline’, ‘Best Business Class’ and ‘Best Middle East Airline’, were presented to the airline at the global Business Traveller Awards 2018, held in London on 15 October.

This was followed by a further five awards for the Middle East and Africa region from global travel site, Kayak, including ‘Best Airline’, ‘Best Boarding’, ‘Best Comfort’, ‘Best Crew’ and ‘Best Food’.

Finally, the national carrier for the State of Qatar rounded off the month with two further honours. The first, a High Commendation for the ‘Global Excellence Award’ at the 2018 CJ You Awards, in California, U.S., followed by third place in the ‘Top Airlines – International’ category in the Condé Nast Travelers 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to have been presented with 10 awards from such a variety of prestigious titles. These accolades are a reflection of our commitment to providing unparalleled service to our passengers.

“As an airline, we constantly strive to provide the best service to our passengers and we are honoured to be recognised through the volume of awards presented to us this year by prestigious industry leaders. We will remain committed to offering our award-winning service and to further enhancing our customers’ flying experience.”

The five awards presented to the airline by travel metasearch website, Kayak, are based on passenger ratings and reviews; the Business Traveller Awards, voted for by the readers of the renowned magazine, are a benchmark of excellence in the aviation industry; whilst the CJ You Awards recognised the airline for its well-executed global strategy for its affiliate program; and the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards were based on the votes of more than 420,000 global travellers. 

The 10 accolades received by the national carrier of the State of Qatar in October are the latest in a host of other honours that have recently been bestowed on the airline.

In September, Qatar Airways won three awards – ‘Best Food and Beverage’, ‘Best Cabin Service’ and ‘Best Seat Comfort’ – for the Middle East region in the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) Awards held in Boston, U.S.

Later that month, the airline was named ‘Best Middle Eastern/African Airline’ at the Business Traveller Asia Pacific Awards held in Hong Kong, as well as ‘Best Inflight Service’ provider at TTG Travel Awards 2018.

Qatar Airways was also named ‘World’s Best Business Class, ‘Best Business Class Seat’, ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’ and ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge’ in the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax.
