After two years of virtual award ceremonies, the 2022 World Airline Awards event resumed normal procedures today, with airlines from all over the world attending the 2022 awards ceremony, which was held at the historic Langham Hotel in London, United Kingdom.
The World Airline Awards, widely regarded as “the Oscars of the aviation industry,” began in 1999 and continue to be completely independent and impartial, with all customer survey costs and awards event expenses covered by the organisers, Skytrax.
“To be named as the World’s Best Airline was always a goal when Qatar Airways was created, but to win it for the seventh time and pick up three additional awards is a testament to all the hard work of our incredible employees. Their continued dedication and drive is to ensure our passengers have the best experience possible when they fly with Qatar Airways. To win these awards in the same year that we celebrate our 25th anniversary is even more rewarding and I want to offer a sincere thanks to all our passengers who voted for us. Your support drives us to greater achievements every day, we value your loyalty and aim to create memories of a lifetime when you fly with Qatar Airways.”Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker
