DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways has been inaugurated into the TTG Travel Hall of Fame, having been crowned as the Best Middle Eastern Airline for the 11th consecutive time at this year’s TTG Travel Awards. The honour establishes Qatar Airways as the first Middle Eastern carrier to be recognised for its commitment to best-in-class hospitality and customer satisfaction and places it among some of Asia’s most renowned and reputable brands.
The TTG Travel Hall of Fame represents the best of the travel industry – the induction criteria to join this elite circle includes winning the same TTG Travel Award at least 10 consecutive times – a testament to the organisation’s continued dedication to excellence. Its entry into the TTG Travel Hall of Fame further cements Qatar Airways’ reputation as a world-class carrier and a leading force in regional and global aviation.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to be inducted into the TTG Travel Hall of Fame – this bears testament to the consistency of our performance day in, day out, on all our flights over the last decade and counting. These are exciting times for our industry and our airline, which now, more than ever before, is committed to delivering great service, as our guests travel farther and more frequently than ever before. I would like to thank the entire Qatar Airways team for continuously delivering a high standard of service and meeting the ever-changing needs of our passengers both in the air and on the ground.”
This latest award comes at a time when Qatar Airways is experiencing remarkable growth. A new aircraft joins the fleet every 15 days, and the carrier is committed to expanding its global network of destinations. These include exotic destinations such as Pisa, Helsinki, Marrakech as well as flights into major cities including Sydney, Atlanta, Boston and Los Angeles. Asia Pacific-based passengers can look forward to convenient flight schedules to these exciting new destinations, with Qatar Airways’ expansive and growing Asian presence.
Qatar Airways Senior Vice President Asia Pacific, Mr. Marwan Koleilat, who received the award on behalf of the airline, said: “We are humbled to know that our efforts are recognised by our colleagues and peers in the industry throughout the past decade. We are very proud to have been awarded this honorary title and will continue bringing to life our brand promise of ‘Going Places Together’.”
Soon to celebrate its 20th anniversary, Qatar Airways has become one of the aviation industry’s largest success stories. The airline constantly scales new heights and has grown exponentially to be one of the fastest growing airlines with one of the youngest aircraft fleet in the world. In December 2015, Qatar Airways launched its brand campaign ‘Going Places Together’ to reflect its core values as a contemporary and innovative company that wants to encourage passengers to take journeys that will help them achieve their dreams and ambitions.
