Qatar Airways is pleased to announce that it has been named Best Airline at the highly-respected 2017 Business Traveller Awards, held recently in London, at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington.

In addition to being voted Best Airline by travellers from around the world, Qatar’s national carrier also won a raft of other major awards at the ceremony, including Best Airline in the Middle East, Best Business Class and Best Long Haul Airline.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said he’s extremely proud that Qatar Airways has been recognised in these four award categories.

To be voted Best Airline, Best Middle Eastern Airline, Best Long Haul Airline, and Best Business Class by the readers of Business Traveller magazine is a significant testimony of our passengers’ trust in what we stand for, placing them first at every stage of a journey.’

Airline alliance oneworld, of which Qatar Airways has been a member since 2013, also won the Best Airline Alliance award for the fifth consecutive year, confirming oneworld’s position as the world’s premier global airline alliance.

Qatar Airways, which was earlier this year voted Airline of the Year, World’s Best Business Class, Best First Class Lounge and Best Airline in the Middle East at the prestigious Skytrax Awards, continues to exceed expectations with its global expansion, strategy and product development.

The Business Traveller Awards are voted for by readers of the leading UK magazine Business Traveller. Results are authenticated by an independent auditing company.
