Qatar Airways was named the World’s Best Airline for the seventh time in a row at the 2022 World Airline Awards, taking home the prestigious Airline of the Year 2022 award.
After two years of virtual award ceremonies, the 2022 World Airline Awards event resumed normal procedures today, with airlines from all over the world attending the 2022 awards ceremony, which was held at the historic Langham Hotel in London, United Kingdom.
The World Airline Awards, widely regarded as “the Oscars of the aviation industry,” began in 1999 and continues to be completely independent and impartial, with all customer survey costs and awards event expenses covered by the organizers, Skytrax.
“To be named as the World’s Best Airline was always a goal when Qatar Airways was created, but to win it for the seventh time and pick up three additional awards is a testament to all of the hard work of our incredible employees,” said His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Chief Executive of Qatar Airways. “Our employees are relentless in their pursuit of excellence in service to the passengers of Qatar Airways”
” I’d like to express my gratitude to everyone who took the time to vote for us in these awards; I can’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate our 25th anniversary than with these accolades. Every day, you inspire us to do better, and when you fly with Qatar Airways, we hope to give you an experience that will stay with you forever”.
Out of more than 350 airlines considered, Singapore Airlines ranks second, followed by Emirates, ANA All Nippon Airways, and Qantas Airways.
Skytrax’s Edward Plaisted remarked, “To receive the 2022 World’s Best Airline award is a great recognition of Qatar Airways’ high standards and recognizes the hard work and dedication from every member of the airline’s staff to satisfy customers.” With a network that never dropped below 30 destinations even during the COVID-19 pandemic, Qatar Airways was the largest airline to fly reliably every day. Their dedication was clearly recognized by customers in 2022, as evidenced by this award as Airline of the Year. We are extremely proud of Qatar Airways for achieving this prestigious honor for a record-setting seventh time.
Qatar Airways, which took home nine awards, was among the night’s biggest winners. Singapore Airlines also walked away with nine trophies. The North American success story was Delta Air Lines, which took home six trophies. Despite stiff competition, Turkish Airlines was named Europe’s best airline four times and took home the award for Best Airline in Europe.
Vistara of India was also a big winner, taking home two trophies for best airline in India and southern Asia, as well as best airline staff service. To quote Vistara CEO Vinod Kannan: “It is incredibly heartening for all of us at Vistara to win these awards, which reaffirms the steadfast trust our customers have in us and is a true testament to Vistara setting global benchmarks for excellence in operations and service delivery.”
For the first time, airBaltic was recognized as the best airline in Eastern Europe, the most improved airline in Europe, and the best airline staff in Eastern Europe at the 2022 World Airline Awards.

Our team at airBaltic is incredibly driven, committed, and enthusiastic about our work. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team, and it is an honor to accept it on their behalf today.
