Qatar Airways continues to hold sway when it comes to being acknowledged as one of the world’s leading airlines. Qatar’s national carrier has this year once again won the award for being the best business class airline.
Qatar Airways has recently been presented the prestigious ‘Best for Business’ award at a glittering Condé Nast Traveler ‘Readers Travel Awards’ presentation ceremony held at London. The airline was effusively praised for its ultra-modern premium lounges and top notch on-board experience to its business class customers.
Akbar Al Baker, Group Chief Executive of Qatar Airways Group, said, “It’s a matter of great honor and pride that the readers of Condé Nast Traveller have recognized Qatar Airways as the ‘Best for Business’. This recognition truly reflects the airline’s commitment towards customers’ satisfaction and offering the best of amenities and services during the entire course of their journey.”
Mr. Baker said that the overall contribution of Qatar Airways towards Business Class passenger experience has been that many significant upgrades and features have been introduced by the airline in recent years. Some of these enhancements include inauguration of Al Mourjan, world’s largest Business Class lounge, at the airline’s headquarters Hamad International Airport in Doha. Among other upgrades include new on-board menus; introduction of Giogio Armani amenity kits; and revamp of Oryx One, state-of-the-art IFE system with above 3,000 entertainment options.
Qatar Airways has been expanding its network quite aggressively over the last year. The airline has also launched many new destinations in 2016 as well. These include Yerevan, Sydney, Ras Al Kahimah, Pisa, Marrakech, Los Angeles, Boston, Birmingham, Atlanta and Adelaide. The airline will also be launching its flights services to other destinations soon, which includes Seychelles, Krabi, Helsinki and Windhoek. The airline has also announced it will be further expanding its network in 2017 with the launch of flights to Auckland, Nice, Skopje and Lusaka.
