Qatar Airways’ strategic investment in a variety of fuel-efficient twin-engine aircraft, including the largest fleet of Airbus A350 aircraft, has enabled Qatar Airways to continue to fly during this crisis and to position itself as a leader in the sustainable recovery of international travel.
The airline recently received three new next-generation Airbus A350-1000 aircraft, increasing its total fleet from A350 to 52 aircraft, with an average age of just 2.6 years. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on travel demand, Qatar Airways immobilized its fleet of Airbus A380 aircraft, as it is not environmentally justified to operate such a large aircraft in the current market.
Qatar Airways also recently launched a new program that allows passengers to voluntarily offset the carbon emissions associated with their trip at the reservation point.
An airline with numerous awards, Qatar Airways was named “World’s Best Airline” by the World Airline Awards in 2019, managed by Skytrax.
It was also designated “Best Airline in the Middle East”, “Best Business Class in the World”, and “Best Seat in Business Class”, in recognition of its pioneering experience in Business Class, Qsuite. Qsuite seats have a 1-2-1 configuration, providing passengers with more space, privacy, comfort and social distance, an exclusive product of the Business Class.
It is the only airline to have received the coveted title “Skytrax Airline of the Year” five times, which is recognized as the pinnacle of excellence in the airline industry. HIA was recently classified as “Third Best Airport in the World”, among 550 airports worldwide, by the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2020.
