Qatar Executive beat stiff competition to pick up the coveted accolade at an awards evening in Dubai attended by leading figures from across the regional travel and aviation industry.

The Best Business Aviation Operator of the Year award is traditionally given to the company that consistently delivers world-class service and excels through key achievements and solid business strategies.

Qatar Executive was recognised for its strong commitment towards offering a superior inflight experience and achieving major accomplishments such as the recent new partnership with the North American fractional jet programme provider Flexjet and the appointment by Bombardier as an Authorised Service Facility in the Middle East.

Qatar Executive will be exhibiting at the Middle East Business Aviation Show (MEBA) in Dubai where it will showcase its products and services to aviation brokers and key industry players.

Al Baker said: “Being awarded Best Business Aviation Operator of the Year is a significant achievement and proud moment for the national airline’s corporate jet arm that has been flying for just three years.

“We operate in a competitive business aviation market with impressive players across the region, so winning this award amid the quality competition out there is a great honour and testament to the hard work we have put into our corporate jet division in such a short space of time.

“It also clearly shows that our products and services are fully recognised, demonstrating we are truly a cut above the rest.”

Qatar Airways is one of the few airlines in the world to provide a private jet service as part of its premium product portfolio and, since its inception three years ago, Qatar Executive has evolved into a leader in exclusive air charter services not just regionally, but worldwide.

The company today operates six wholly-owned all-Bombardier private jets – the youngest fleet of its kind in the Gulf. These include three Challenger 605s, two Global 5000s (above)  and a Global Express XRS.
