Qatar Airways was awarded two best-in-class accolades for its premium in-flight services at the TravelPlus awards ceremony held in Hamburg, Germany, recently.
The Doha-based carrier received two TravelPlus Airline Gold Awards - the first for its signature Missoni sleeper suits and the other for its recently launched Hasbro children’s activity pack.
Qatar Airways senior vice-president (customer experience) Rossen Dimitrov said, “We are very proud, once again, to be honoured for delivering outstanding customer experience for all our passengers travelling together with Qatar Airways. Both awards recognise the airline’s high-quality service and standing as a world-class airline.”
Qatar Airways won gold at last year’s TravelPlus Awards for its exclusive Italian designer Giorgio Armani Fragrances and Beauty First Class Male amenity kit and the Business Class Middle East amenity kit.
Assessment for the acclaimed industry awards focuses on the wishes and needs of travellers, with selection criteria adhering to trend, pleasure, luxury, usability and style, all from a traveller’s perspective.
“Qatar Airways offers first class passengers on overnight flights stylish and luxurious sleeper suits and slippers designed by Italian fashion house Missoni. The exclusive Missoni sleepwear offers comfort and promotes relaxation throughout passengers’ journeys,” the airline said in a statement yesterday.
The carrier launched its new children’s activity pack on board its worldwide network in January 2016 in partnership with Hasbro Gaming to provide even more entertainment for its youngest guests. “The new kits offer more levels of interactivity and playability than ever before, featuring exciting Mr Potato Head plush toys and Hasbro Gaming brand board games, known for their suite of leading family entertainment properties,” the
Featured titles include the world’s favourite family gaming brand, Monopoly, and long-standing classics such as Twister, Guess Who and Connect 4. The activity kits are available on board and have been developed specifically for children from the ages of 0- 2 years and 3-12 years.
A total of four different kits, each featuring a different type of game, are available to families flying to and from Doha on both long-haul and short-haul flights. Young travellers can explore and play with glow-in-the-dark toys and stickers, interactive bags and a gadget stand. Kits for infants include a peek-a-boo Mr Potato Head plush toy and soft books.
In addition, children-friendly meals can be pre-ordered and are served in reusable Monopoly or Mr Potato Head collectable meal boxes, the statement adds.
