Qatar Airways Takes Home Awards at Future Travel Experience

Qatar Airways has been awarded the ´Best Up In The Air Experience´ award for the third consecutive year and the ´Best Baggage Initative´ award at the Future Travel Experience Global 2017 awards ceremony, held last week in Las Vegas, the company said.

The ´Best Up In The Air Experience´ award recognises the airline´s groundbreaking new Business Class seat, Qsuite, which has revolutionised the onboard Business Class experience. Qsuite features sliding privacy doors that allow colleagues, friends, or families travelling together to create their own private room, enabling them to work, dine or socialise together, as well as fully flat beds, a do-not-disturb button and generous storage space. With the launch of Qsuite, Qatar Airways has also claimed the honour of being the first airline to offer a bed in Business Class.

The airline was also presented with the ´Best Baggage Initative´ award for its baggage management system, HAQIBA, developed in-house to manage all baggage-related activities across Qatar Airways´ extensive global network, including end-to-end real-time tracking for passengers. The HAQIBA system has also enabled the airline to achieve IATA Resolution 753 compliance at its Doha hub.

Qatar Airways, the national carrier of the State of Qatar, is celebrating 20 years of Going Places Together with travelers across its more than 150 business and leisure destinations. It is a member of the oneworld global alliance.
