Qatar Airways named top airline at 2016 Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards
This marks the seventh consecutive year that the airline has won the prestigious award.
“We are extremely honored to be voted as the Best Middle Eastern-African Airline for the seventh straight year,” Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said. “We would like to thank our loyal passengers for their continued support and for giving us their vote of confidence. I would also like to express my gratitude to all of our staff for their continued dedication to delivering exceptional, award-winning, travel experiences and products to our passengers.”
The award is one of many accolades won by the company in recent months; it was named “Best For Business” by Condé Nast Traveller readers, was ranked number one globally by AirHelp for its quality and service, and was awarded the World’s Best Business Class, Best Business Class Airline Lounge and Best Airline Staff Service in the Middle East at the Skytrax 2016 World Airline Awards.
“It is my honor to receive the award on behalf of Qatar Airways and to be recognized among Asia Pacific’s best within the travel and hospitality industry,” Qatar Airways Vice President of North Asia Paul Johannes, who represented the airline at the 2016 Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards, said. “Asia is a core part of Qatar Airways’ business and network, and we are privileged to remain an airline of choice in the region. We will continue to work hard at exceeding our travelers’ expectations.”
