DOHA, Qatar, 19 August 2021: Qatar Airways gained recognition for its Covid-19 hygiene safety and service quality with four five-star ratings awarded by Skytrax.

Hamad International Airport recently won Airport of the Year 2021, and Qatar Airways received the prestigious Skytrax Five-Star rating across four categories – Best Airline Rating, Airline Covid-19 Safety Rating, Best Airport Rating, and Airport Covid-19 Safety Rating. Qatar Airways beats other global carriers and air hubs worldwide for Covid-19 safety and premium service quality.

Currently, Qatar is open to fully vaccinated visitors who
must also show a negative COVID-19 PCR test done 48 hours before their flight.

Qatar Airways, vice president of sales for Southeast Asia
and South Asia Subcontinent, Jared Lee, commented: “We are honoured to be
awarded multiple Skytrax’s 5-Star ratings for both Qatar Airways and Hamad
International Airport.

“Since the initial outbreak of Covid-19, we have taken
stringent measures to keep our passengers and employees safe, and these awards
are a testament to our efforts. Operating throughout the entire pandemic has
also given Qatar Airways the expertise and experience to implement the best
onboard hygiene measures using the latest technology. We strive to be the best
in every category and will continue to provide exceptional service, dependable
flight schedules, and safeguard our passengers’ health.”

Qatar Airways is also the first airline in the Middle East
to trial the IATA Travel Pass Digital Passport mobile app and organised the
world’s first fully-vaccinated flight in early April 2021, where the airline’s
ground staff, operating crew and passengers were fully vaccinated.
