Qatar Airways Wins Big at the 2017 FTE Global Awards
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, USA.
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.
Future Travel Experience Global 2017 (FTE Global) is one of the leading travel conferences worldwide, where representatives of airlines, airports and other travel industry stakeholders meet to demonstrate and discuss their latest customer experience initiatives.
Qatar Airways is one of the fastest-growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world. Now in its 20th year of operations, Qatar Airways has a modern fleet of 200 aircraft flying to business and leisure destinations across six continents.
