This year we’ve seen many airlines fall on the list while many have climbed. Qatar is one of the airlines whom have showed a substantial improvement in just this past year. Adding new routes to their worldwide network and also being the launch customer of one of Airbus’s newest long haul aircraft, the A350-1000.

Speaking of Qatar’s home base of Doha, Qatar has also won the best airline in the Middle East beating out the other two airlines in the big 3 which are Emirates who placed 2nd and Etihad airways whom placed 3rd on the list. Qatar airways presence in the Middle East has always been huge. They operate a variety of short to long haul flights with a fleet that consists of the Airbus A350-900/1000, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Airbus A380, the Boeing 777, the whole Airbus A320 series excluding the A318, and the A330/340 aircraft (currently being phased out). Qatar also has a cargo fleet flying worldwide from their base in Doha as well. Not only do they have commercial and cargo operations, they also have Executive operations!


As you can tell Qatar is geared up to be one of the worlds best for years to come as well as in the Middle East. We look forward to traveling with Qatar in the future as well as many of the amazing runner up airlines you can find on Skytrax’s list. Congratulations to all the airlines whom won an award and those who came in as runners up in this year’s voting!
