Qatar Airways celebrates a strong 2015

Qatar Airways officials rang in the new year last week by celebrating a number of accomplishments in 2015.

The company became the first airline in the world to operate the entire line of Airbus planes and was also the first airline to top 10 million fans on Facebook.

"As 2015 comes to an end, Qatar Airways is able to reflect on a number of successes throughout the year, while also celebrating the launch of our new global brand campaign and latest on-board safety video," Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said. "This has been a momentous way to end what has been a truly historic year for the national carrier of Qatar which has seen, among other things, several top award wins, the forging of new partnerships, strong engagement on social media, the launch of a brand new aircraft type and the start of several new routes on both its passenger and cargo networks."

The company also grew its fleet by 20 percent, adding 29 new planes. Airline officials said the fleet is one of the youngest in the skies, averaging just four years per aircraft.

Moving forward, the airline will add flights to Atlanta, Birmingham, Boston and Los Angeles in the U.S., Sydney and  Adelaide in Australia  and Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE, increasing its overall list of destinations to nearly 40. It will also continue pursuing its "Going Places Together" global brand campaign, which emphasizes the company's commitment to connecting people and places.
