The airline was re-launched in 1997 under the mandate of His Highness The Father Emir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who outlined a vision to turn Qatar Airways into a leading international airline with the highest standards of service and excellence.
Qatar Airways has since become one of the fastest growing carriers in the history of aviation with unprecedented expansion averaging double digit growth year on year.
The airline has developed under the dynamic leadership of Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, appointed in 1997, who has been instrumental in turning Qatar Airways into an awardwinning carrier and the best in the world. Under Mr. Al Baker’s stewardship, Qatar Airways has matured into a leading force in regional and global aviation, earning many admirers around the world for its excellent standards of service.
In April 2011, Qatar Airways reached a milestone reaching 100 destinations in its global route map. Two months later, the airline achieved a remarkable feat, just 14 years after its re-launch, being named Airline of the Year 2011 at the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards with over 18 million travellers worldwide casting their votes.
In July 2012, Qatar Airways was once again named Airline of the Year 2012, holding onto its title for the second consecutive year. Qatar Airways joined oneworld, as of 30 October 2013, with integration into the global alliance completed within one year of the October 2012 joining announcement. Qatar Airways remains the only Gulf airline member in any of the big three global alliances.
In 2014 the airline became the global launch customer of the first Airbus A350. In June 2015, Qatar Airways achieved a major accomplishment receiving the Skytrax Airline of the Year 2015 accolade for a third time. 2016 to date has seen another year of notable expansion for the leading airline. Qatar Airways won World’s Best Business Class; Best Business Class Airline Lounge and Best Airline Staff Service in the Middle East at the Skytrax Awards and announced a commitment for 100 Boeing aircraft: 10 777s, 30 787- 9s and 60 737 MAX aircraft, to power its future growth. One of the biggest orders in the airline’s history, worth more than US$90 billion, the announcement brought the total number of aircraft the airline has on order to more than 350. Qatar Airways also announced a new order for three G650ERs private jets on the opening day of the 2016 Farnborough Air show in July, demonstrating continued growth and expansion of its Qatar Executive division.
Qatar Airways will become the first airline in the world to meet and exceed ICAO’s Global Aeronautical Distress Safety System (GADSS) requirement for aircraft location management, through a partnership with FlightAware and Aireon, LLC using its GlobalBeacon technology, which will provide minute by minute tracking capabilities.
