Qatar Airways won two awards at the recent Australian Business Traveller Awards. The Doha-based carrier’s superjumbo A380 Lounge was named “Best Inflight Lounge” and the airline also picked up the “Best Economy Class” accolade for its A350 Economy Class cabin.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to have received these two accolades for our flagship A380 and A350 aircraft, particularly so for the A350 which only commenced operations just seven months ago. These awards bear testament to our commitment and dedication to delivering a high quality travel experience for all passengers who fly with Qatar Airways, across all classes of travel. Whether you are travelling with us in the Premium Cabins or in Economy Class, our five-star service offering remains consistent.”
Qatar Airways’ A350 Economy Class cabin was named Best Economy Class as it “cleverly marries the overall sense of space in the Airbus A350 cabin with an economy seat that’s a generous 18 inches wide, with ample room around the knees for even the tallest traveller,” said David Flynn, editor of the Australian Business Traveller.
