Qatar Airways has announced that it has once again been named the Best Middle Eastern/African Airline at the 2015 Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards, which was held in Hong Kong recently.
This is the sixth consecutive year the Gulf carrier has received this accolade “in recognition of its continued efforts in providing award-winning travel experiences for its passengers”, according to a statement from the Doha-based airline.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive Akbar al-Baker said, “We are very pleased to be voted the Best Middle Eastern/African Airline once again. In the fiercely competitive airline industry, we are proud to continue setting benchmarks and to be able to retain the top position for the sixth successive year.
“We are delighted that our efforts have not gone unnoticed by our passengers, and we would like to thank them for their continued support. This award recognises Qatar Airways’ continued pursuit of success and is a testament to our focus on consistently delivering high-quality travel experiences for all our  passengers.”
The 24th annual Business Traveller Awards gave away awards in more than 50 categories, honouring the best in the hospitality industry. The accolades are based on votes from readers and tallied by global market research leaders.
Marwan Koleilat, Qatar Airways Southeast Asia Southwest Pacific senior vice-president, was present to receive the award.
Koleilat said: “It is an honour to receive the award on behalf of Qatar Airways and also to be among Asia’s best in the travel and hospitality industry. This recognition strengthens our belief that we are on the right track, and are providing our passengers with a quality product that fits their needs.
“I would like to thank our passengers for their continuing loyalty and for all our staff who share our belief and have worked diligently to maintain the high standards that we are now renowned for.”
The Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Award adds to Qatar Airways’ trophy cabinet, which also includes three of the top aviation honours recently clinched at the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards, including Airline of the Year – an accolade Qatar Airways has received for the third time.
The carrier was also named Best Airline in the Middle East and voted Best Business Class Airline Seat by travellers around the world.
