Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to once again receive this respected award from Money magazine, as it demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the finest in the industry to our passengers. We enjoyed a record-breaking year in 2017, claiming multiple accolades worldwide, including the prestigious Skytrax ‘Airline of the Year’ award, all thanks to the unwavering support from our dedicated customers.
