Qatar Airways has been named "Best Business Class Airline" at the high profile Business Traveller Awards 2014 for 2nd year in a row, which were held at The Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, London, recently. The award follows major recognition in July, at the Farnborough Air Show, where Qatar Airways was again named “Best Business Class Airline” by Skytrax.
At the Business Traveller Awards 2014, Qatar Airways was also named as a finalist in several other categories – Best Airline, Best Long-Haul Airline, Best Economy Class, Best Middle Eastern Airline and Best Cabin Staff.
In May, Qatar Airways launched the first all-Business Class service to operate between Doha and London Heathrow, with an A319 offering 40 bespoke seats. The successful, daily service has proven increasingly popular with the UK business market and offers an additional private jet-like option which will complement the existing five frequencies between the two cities.
The Business Traveller Awards are voted for by readers of the magazine with the results authenticated by an independent auditing company and are widely recognised as the airline industry’s benchmark for excellence. Readers base their voting on the strength of the airline’s customer service, its route network and services.
