Qatar Airways has scooped this year’s best long haul airline award at the 2017 business travel awards.

The flag carrier based in Doha was commended for comfort, convenience and choice.

The panel that judges the awards said that although Qatar offers a wide network with an excellent CSR programme it was the customer centric approach to the service provided onboard that differentiates itself from the competition.

Qatar has some of the widest business class seats available and even in economy class offers over 3000 entertainment options complemented with onboard wifi.

Qatar is continuing its aggressive expansion plans with over a dozen new routes added in 2016 and more to be launched in 2017.
