A further award was presented to Qatar Airways for the ‘Best First Class Airline Lounge’, this now for the second consecutive year and ‘Best Business Class Seat’, in recognition of the ground-breaking Business Class experience.

Furthermore, Qatar Airways' home and hub, Hamad International Airport, was also categorized as the fifth Best Airport in the World.
