In 2011, Qatar Airways reached a milestone of 100 destinations in its global route map. Two months later, the airline achieved a remarkable feat, just 14 years after its relaunch, being named Airline of the Year 2011 at the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards with over 18 million travellers worldwide casting their votes.
In October 2011, Qatar Airways attained another key milestone by taking delivery of its 100th aircraft. Today, the award-winning airline has orders for over 250 aircraft worth more than US$50 billion.
Already ranked Five Star for service excellence by Skytrax, the independent aviation industry monitoring agency confirmed Qatar Airways as Best Airline in the Middle East for the sixth year in a row and Best First Class Lounge for its Premium Terminal at its Doha hub – a facility for exclusive use by Qatar Airways’ First and Business Class passengers.
