To have been recognised for excellence across so many key categories is a tremendous achievement for Qatar Airways, and is proof of the great heights to which we have soared during the past year. This accomplishment sets a new benchmark for the airline going forward, and we renew our commitment to continuing to innovate to offer our passengers the very finest experience when they fly.”
