Edward Plaisted of Skytrax says that for Qatar Airways to win for the seventh time in a row is a ‘unique and memorable achievement’.

He continues: ‘Qatar Airways was the most important airline to have flown consistently throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, with their network never falling below 30 destinations, and that determination has clearly been well recognised by customers with this award as Airline of the 12 months 2022.’

It was not the one accolade that the airline received at the distinguished awards, which took place at The Langham Hotel in London. Gongs for World’s Best Business Class, Best Business Class Airline seat and Best Business Class Lounge Dining will also be added to the trophy cabinet.
