Qatar Airways once again triumphed at the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards, winning three top accolades including the main award as Best Airline in the World for the second year running.
Qatar Airways retained the coveted title of Airline of the Year 2012 and notched up two further awards - Best Airline in the Middle East for the seventh consecutive year and the Best Airline Staff Service award in the Middle East.
Qatar Airways CEO, Mr Akbar Al Baker hailed the achievements as a “fantastic recognition” of all employees at Qatar Airways for their dedication and commitment to their job. “I am extremely proud of the praise given once again by the very people who fly, the travelling public for their support and faith in Qatar Airways. Qatar Airways set out on a mission 15 years ago when we launched to be the world's best airline and spreading the airline's brand to all corners of the world. Last year we achieved that. Retaining awards is always difficult, but we have managed to do so amid the tough competition which only shows we remain focused in our day to day job of offering passengers what they fully deserve - highest standards of service in the air and on the ground” said Mr Al Baker.
