Number one on the top ten list of best airlines in the world, Qatar Airlines deserves all the superlatives one can think of. The renowned brand received the title of Best Airline of the World at the Skytrax 2012 World Airline Awards, but this is not the first time it received important awards.
Last year it was offered the same award at the Paris Air Show, and the list continues with titles like ‘Best Regional Airline in the Middle East’, ‘World’s Best First Class Airline Lounges’, ‘World’s Best Business Class Airline Seat’ and ‘World’s Best Business Class Onboard Catering’.
The Doha-based company has also received recognition for its irreproachable check-ins, comfortable lounges, professional service, and more.
Before handing out their much coveted awards, Skytrax does a lot of research, thus continuing their tradition as reliable assessors of quality and high standards. They need ten months of intensive evaluations, gauging customer’s satisfaction with the services provided by different airlines (200 airlines for this year’s survey) before deciding which company is the best.
After considering the opinions of 18 million travelers from 100 countries, based on 38 performance indicators (check-in, boarding, staff service, in-flight entertainment, seat comfort, and more), Skytrax finally reached the conclusion that Qatar Airlines is again the most appreciated airline company in the world.
