Qatar Executive beat stiff competition to pick up a coveted accolade at an awards evening in Dubai attended by leading figures from across the regional travel and aviation industry.
Qatar Airways' corporate jet division was named best business aviation operator of 2012 by Middle East industry publication Aviation Business, an award traditionally given to the company that consistently delivers world class service and excels through key achievements and solid business strategies.
Delivering a superior inflight experience and accomplishments such as a recent partnership with fractional jet programme provider Flexjet, plus the company's appointment by Bombardier as an authorised service facility, were all cited as reasons for the award.
Qatar Airways ceo Akbar Al Baker says: "We operate in a competitive business aviation market with impressive players across the region, so winning this award is testament to the hard work we've put into our corporate jet division in a short space of time."
Headquartered at Doha International Airport, Qatar Executive offers jet charter to Europe, Asia, North America, Africa, Australia and the Middle East.
