Qatar Airways wraps up an outstanding week of awards, inaugural flights and orders

Qatar Airways (QA) has wrapped up a remarkable week, concluding a successful appearance at the Paris Air Show 2019, launching inaugural flights to Davao, the Philippines and Lisbon in Portugal, and breaking records at the 2019 Skytrax World Airline Awards and 2019 Passenger Experience Association’s (APEX) Passenger Choice Awards.

QA swept up honours at the prestigious 2019 Skytrax World Airline Awards and 2019 Passenger APEX Passenger Choice Awards. The national airline of Qatar took home a total of 11 Skytrax World Airline Awards, including ‘World’s Best Airline’ – becoming the only airline in the competition’s history to win it five times (2011, 2012, 2015, 2017 and 2019).

The airline was also named ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’ for a third successive year, and ‘World’s Best Business Class’ for a fourth year in succession.

QA also set a new mark at the 2019 APEX Passenger Choice Awards, winning four out of six in the highly competitive Middle East category – an all-time record for a single airline in a region. The airline was named ‘Best Overall Carrier in the Middle East’, ‘Best Cabin Service in the Middle East’, ‘Best Food & Beverage in the Middle East’, and ‘Best Seat Comfort in the Middle East’.

 

QA Group Chief Executive Akbar al Baker said: “We are honoured to be globally recognised by our customers by winning these prestigious awards. Setting new records at two separate awards events is a landmark achievement and, is testament to the tireless efforts of the entire Qatar Airways team. It is a proud moment for the airline as our constant innovation and service standards set the benchmark in our industry.

“These standards and innovative thinking were on display at the Paris Air Show 2019 with our showcase of the ultra-modern Airbus A350-1000 alongside the state-of-the-art Gulfstream G500 and announcement of our order of five new Boeing 777 Freighters. During the same seven day period we also demonstrated our commitment to connecting people around the world, by launching two new exciting destinations: Davao in the Philippines and Lisbon in Portugal.”
