Qatar Airways, crowned Airline of the Year at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2015, won 2 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, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to have received these 2 accolades for our flagship A380 and A350 aircraft, particularly so for the A350 which only commenced operations just 7 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 5-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 theAustralian Business Traveller.
In addition to wider seats in Business and Economy Classes, the state-of-the-art aircraft is also quieter and features advanced air conditioning technology coupled with mood lighting to reduce passenger fatigue after a long flight.
