{pp}Carrier Wins Key Accolade At Business Traveller Middle East Awards In Dubai

Qatar Airways took home the airline award for Best Economy Class in the Middle East at a ceremony for travel industry profressionals held in Dubai last night. Readers of the monthly Business Traveller Middle East magazine voted the Doha-based airline as having the most comfortable cabin and best inflight service for passengers travelling in Economy.

The win comes just weeks after Qatar Airways earned the title of Best Economy Class in the world at the annual Skytrax passenger survey awards in Germany. The latest accolade recognises the airline’s continued commitment to offering the travelling public with unrivalled levels of inflight service. Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said: “Most airlines invest heavily in developing their premium cabins and, while we continue to do this, Qatar Airways strives to innovate in Economy Class ensuring our high standards are maintained and passenger expectations are exceeded worldwide.” Qatar Airways recently revamped its Economy Class inflight-service, which sees all onboard meals served in a more upmarket, appetising and stylish way, aimed at enhancing passengers’ overall flying experience. New-look colourful meal tray components offer Economy Class passengers a whole new take on food presentation, guiding them on a wonderful culinary journey.

Qatar Airways currently operates a modern fleet of 68 Airbus and Boeing aircraft to 84 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, Middle East, Africa, South Asia, Far East and North America. Qatar Airways is the only 5-star rated Gulf airline, and from its hub in Doha, flies to over 80 destinations covering Africa, Europe, Middle East, Indian subcontinents, Far East and America. Over the next 10 months, Qatar Airways will add six new routes to its burgeoning network – Goa and Amritsar in India; Sydney and Melbourne in Australia marking its first foray Down Under; and two further cities in Europe. Their commitment is to provide travellers with the highest quality of service both in the air and on the ground and this new service offering expands on their outstanding 5 star offering.
