Qatar Airways, Airlineratings.com’s Airline Of The Year in 2021 and 2022 has again scooped major awards for 2023 at the rating agencies Airline Excellence Awards.
AirlineRatings.com founder and Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas said that “Airline Ratings Excellence Awards are aptly named, for, at every touchpoint, excellence is the goal at Qatar Airways led by its Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr Akbar Al Baker.”
“Mr Al Baker’s drive for perfection has led to many improvements in both Airbus and Boeing aircraft and travellers across the world are better off because of the passion and the pursuit of excellence of Qatar Airways,” Mr Thomas said.
Qatar Airways has won Best Business Class for its QSuite, Best Catering for its amazing in-flight food service and Best Airline In The Middle East.
Qatar Airways is no stranger to the winner’s circle having picked up many awards for its service and cabin seating over the past ten years.
Not only did AirlineRatings.com award Qatar Airways as its “Airline of the Year” for 2022 & 2021 but Qatar Airways was named “Airline of the Year” by the international air transport rating organisation, Skytrax, for an unprecedented seventh time.
Qatar Airways also took home three additional awards from Skytrax last year including World’s Best Business Class, World’s Best Business Class Lounge Dining, and Best Airline in the Middle East.
Qatar Airways has been named Airline of the Year in 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021 and 2022.
The airline is at the forefront of developing and introducing new aircraft types such as the 787, A350, and 777X and it has one of the world’s youngest fleets.
It is spending millions to revamp aircraft cabins with new cabin product that includes the stunning business-class Qsuites.
“For years Qatar Airways has been the gold standard, and it just keeps getting better with new passenger innovations and new state-of-the-art aircraft models,” said Mr Thomas.
Airlineratings.com was developed to provide everyone in the world with a one-stop shop for everything related to airlines, formed by a team of aviation editors, who have forensically researched nearly every airline in the world.
Our rating system is rated from one to seven stars on safety – with seven being the highest ranking. Within each airline, you will find the country of origin, airline code, booking URL and seat map information. The rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies, lead associations, as well as the airlines, own safety data. Every airline has a safety rating breakdown so you can see exactly how they rate.
Over 360 of the airlines on the site that carry 99 per cent of the world’s passengers have a product rating. Given that low-cost, regional and full-service carriers are so different we have constructed a different rating system for each which can be found within each airline.
Airlineratings.com has information on over 30 types of aircraft from the latest Boeing 787 to the A380 and smaller jets.
