Qatar Airways Voted Best Airline in the Middle East

Qatar Airways has once again been voted Best Airline in the Middle East and Africa by readers of Asia’s most respected travel trade magazine, TTG Asia.

For the sixth year running, the Doha-based carrier retained the title at the TTG Asia Travel Awards ceremony held in Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok.

Readers of the prestigious magazine based their voting on the strength of the airline’s customer service, its route network, services and its marketing and advertising programmes.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said the latest award was a reflection of the airline’s continued investment in delivering the best to its customers.

“We are constantly working to expand our route network to offer our customers optimal connections to destinations all over the world, whether travelling for leisure or business,” he said.

“Once again readers of the esteemed travel trade title TTG Asia have given Qatar Airways the vote of confidence – for the sixth year running. This clearly demonstrates the hard work, dedication and effort that employees across Qatar Airways puts into their jobs to ensure customers have a memorable experience.

He said 2011 has been an historic year of milestones for Qatar Airways with the 100th aircraft joining our fleet, the 100th destination introduced into our global network and being named Airline of the Year.

Qatar Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Marwan Koleilat, who accepted the award on behalf of the airline, said: “The TTG Asia Awards are attended by some of the industry’s most renowned travel personalities, making it a very special event in the region’s travel industry calendar. Winning this award is further testament to Qatar Airways’ success and growing popularity.”

So far this year, Qatar Airways has added 12 destinations to its international map – Bucharest, Budapest, Brussels, Stuttgart, Aleppo, Shiraz, Venice, Montreal, Medina, Kolkata, Sofia and Oslo – and is gearing up for more route expansion with a further two destinations – Entebbe and Chongqing – being inducted into the network by the end of November.
