Popular News

Qatar Airways has been announced as the ‘Airline of the Year’ by the international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax.

The airline continues to stand alone at the top of the industry having now won the main prize for an unprecedented sixth time, said a press release.

Known as the Oscars of the Aviation Industry, the 2021 Skytrax awards covered the period from September 2019 to July 2021 with the results reflecting a mix of more normal travel times combined with travel during the pandemic.

The extended period clearly demonstrated the resilience and flexibility of Qatar Airways, as it not only delivered continued excellence during normal times, but steadfastly continued flights and offered a lifeline to its customers across the globe during the most challenging of times.

Qatar Airways also became the first global airline to receive the Skytrax Covid-19 Safety Rating in January 2021 while its home and hub, Hamad International Airport, was recently voted the World’s Best Airport 2021 in August.

Qatar Airways has placed even greater emphasis on the passenger experience and biosafety during the pandemic to enhance service levels and provide reassurance to travellers.
