Qatar Airways is thrilled to have been honored 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, which was held in London on October 15.
This was followed by a further five awards for the Middle East and Africa region from global travel site, Kayak, such as 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, US, 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 programme; and the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards were based on the votes of more than 420,000 global travellers.
