Qatar Airways wins best Economy Class award
Dubai, May 7, 2009
Qatar Airways has won the airline award for Best Economy Class in the Middle East at a ceremony for travel industry professionals held in Dubai.
Readers of the monthly Business Traveller Middle East magazine voted the Doha-based airline as having the most comfortable cabin and best in-flight 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 in-flight service.
“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,” said Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways chief executive officer.
Qatar Airways recently revamped its Economy Class in-flight 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.
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. – TradeArabia News Service
