When an airline flies to more than a hundred destinations all across the globe, it is surely among the few select leaders in the commercial aviation industry, and when an airline not only finds itself in this list but also finds itself here in a surprisingly short period of time, then there is surely something commendable about it.
Qatar Airways is an airline that has achieved quite a lot in a very short period of time. And in spite of its meteoric rise, it has still managed to keep its customers happy without compromising on any of the services or amenities offered to them. In a way, it is this responsible growth that has made Qatar Airways a favorite airline.
All that the airline had to begin with was a Boeing 767-200ER, and even that was a leased one. In the year 1997 however there was a conscious move to increase the operational capacity of the airline and this gave birth to an airline that has today grown into one of the most successful ones with among the most expansive reach.
In the few years that have seen the amazing accomplishments of Qatar Airways, there hasn’t been a single moment when the passengers of the airline have ever been sidelined in any way. And that is the reason that in spite of such widespread operations the airline has still been voted by the passengers as Airline of the Year for two years, 2011 and 2012, at the Skytrax World Airline Awards.
The year 2012, even before it has ended, has seen a number of awards added to the airline’s already long list. Apart from the Airline of the Year Award, Qatar Airways also received the Best Airline in the Middle East Award, again through Skytrax. The air service provider Dnata even acknowledged the airline’s efficiency by naming it the Best On Time Performance Airline. This says a lot about the efficiency of the airline, especially when one takes into consideration the massive size of the operations.
The Business Class of the aircraft in the airline’s fleet was named the best in the world by the Business Traveler Middle East Magazine, and the staff of the airline received commendation in the form of the Best Airline Staff in the Middle East Award by Skytrax. The Skytrax World Airport Awards also acknowledged the excellent airport services and excellent amenities that Qatar Airways provided through the World’s Best Premium Service Airport Award, the 10th Best Airport Hotel in the World Award, and the Best Airport Hotel in the Middle East Award.
This long list of awards and that too only in a single year speaks volumes about the efficiency of a relatively young airline such as Qatar Airways.
