Qatar Airways has been voted “Best long haul airline” at the 18th annual Business Travel Awards ceremony held at the Grosvenor House hotel in London recently.
Organised by Buying Business Travel magazine, the UK travellers awarded the five-star carrier for its commitment to quality and superior in-flight service.
Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar al-Baker said he was delighted that the airline’s award winning streak has continued into the New Year.
“This is a great start to 2013 and we thank our loyal UK travellers for giving us this vote of confidence.
“We are very proud to receive this honour, testament to the world-class service and personalised treatment that we provide all of our customers.
“2013 will be another big year for Qatar Airways as we continue to expand our worldwide network, welcome more aircraft into our ever-expanding fleet, and of course look forward to the opening of the new Hamad International Airport on April 1,” al-Baker said.
Qatar Airways vice president (Commercial Europe) Paul Johannes collected the award on behalf of the airline.
Johannes said, “We are very pleased with the level of support we have received from our UK customers, which further highlights the appreciation of our attention to detail and passenger comfort. We look forward to continuing to serve our existing UK-based travellers and welcoming new customers onboard.”
Buying Business Travel Editor Paul Revel said: “The judges felt that Qatar Airways is right up there with the best. A very impressive submission, underlining the youth and dynamism of this carrier. A great product, rapidly expanding network and plenty of innovation.”
