Qatar Airways, the best airline in the world

The World Airline Awards represent a landmark in the field of quality and excellence in the aviation industry, an annual competition that is based on the vote of travelers around the world. We are talking about an equivalent of the Oscars, but in the aviation industry, it is a highly prized competition for the transparency of the processes and for its independent character (there is no external influence).

The UK Advertising Authority (ASA) evaluated, in 2015, how the voting process and interpretation of results are conducted and concluded that they are clear, compliant with regulations and independent.
