Qatar Airways wins ‘Airline of the Year 2022’


Qatar Airways has been named “Airline of the Year 2022” by the international air transport rating organization, Skytrax.

This is the seventh time the Gulf carrier has won the coveted award, after being named the best in business in 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021.

At the event in London this week, Qatar Airways won three additional awards including “World’s Best Business Class”, “World’s Best Business Class Lounge Dining”, and “Best Airline in the Middle East”.

The prestigious 2022 Skytrax awards are coveted within the industry due to their reputation as the benchmark for excellence and distinction.

The airline’s home airport and hub, Hamad International Airport, was also recently voted the World’s Best Airport 2022, taking home the award for the second year in succession.

Singapore Airlines was named the world’s second airline this year. Dubai’s Emirates came third. Japan’s All Nippon Airways and Australia’s Qantas Airways came in fourth and fifth respectively. This year, the top five were entirely Asian and Pacific airlines.
