About Qatar Airways

Having been founded in 1993 and headquartered in Doha, Qatar Airways is the state-owned flag carrier of Qatar, connecting over 160 international destinations across Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, South America, and Oceania. It is one of the youngest global airlines and has since grown rapidly to become one of the world's leading carriers.

The airline operates a modern fleet of over 200 aircraft, primarily consisting of Airbus and Boeing wide-body jets. Qatar Airways is a member of the Oneworld airline alliance, and has codeshare agreements with many other airlines, allowing it to offer an even wider network of destinations.

Qatar Airways is known for its high-quality service and luxury amenities, such as its award-winning Qsuite business class product, which features private suites with sliding doors, lie-flat beds, and direct aisle access. The airline has won numerous awards, including ‘Airline of the Year’ by Skytrax seven times—in 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021 and 2022.
