Each year, the readers of Business Traveller magazine are invited to vote on their favorite airlines in various categories, with the results later certified by an independent auditing firm. Business Traveller is the leading magazine for frequent business travelers and publishes 14 editions worldwide. At Monday’s London ceremony, Qatar Airways’ reputation for excellence was once again affirmed by travelers. According to the Qatar Airways Press Release, not only did the airline receive the coveted ‘Best Airline’ award, but they were also voted ‘Best Long-Haul Airline’, ‘Best Business Class’ and ‘Best Middle Eastern Airline’, which is no small feat considering the number of highly competent operators in the region. At the ceremony, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker stated,

“To be recognized once again by the readers of Business Traveller with these prestigious awards is a huge honor for Qatar Airways and an appreciation of our promise to consistently deliver a truly world-class service.”


On behalf of Qatar Airways, the awards were accepted by Qatar Airways’ European Senior Vice President Sylvain Bosc and UK and Ireland Country Manager Gary Kershaw. The event was hosted by BBC News journalist John Pienaar.


These awards were just the latest in an ever-growing collection of accolades received by Qatar Airways. Earlier this year, the airline won numerous 'Skytrax 2019 World Airline Awards' including, ‘World’s Best Airline’, ‘World’s Best Business Class’, and ‘Best Business Class Seat’ for their Q-suite Business Class product. Additionally, Qatar Airways is the only airline to have ever received the prestigious 'Skytrax Airline of the Year Award' five times. We congratulate Qatar Airways for once again being recognized as a leader in airline industry excellence.
