Middle East carrier Qatar Airways is offering its customers discounted flight rates in celebration of its recent crowning as the World’s Best Airline.

The Doha-based carrier won the World’s Best Airline, World’s Best Business Class, Best Airline in the Middle East, and World’s Best First Class Airline Lounge awards during the 2017 Skytrax World Airline Awards that took place in France.

“We are delighted to celebrate these great wins with our passengers from all over the world, and we hope this unique offer will allow them to experience our renowned, world-class service on our rapidly-expanding global network,” said Qatar Airways chief commercial officer Ehab Amin.

The airline has been offering deals to woo customers.

Recently, Qatar Airways offered free transit visas and Doha hotel stays for its customers.

The passengers had the alternative of upgrading transit to stay overs where they could tour and stay free of charge at a Doha Hotel.

Qatar Airways introduced a patented new Business Class dubbed the Qsuite that includes a double bed available in Business Class, with privacy panels that stowaway, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room.

Adjustable panels and movable TV monitors on the centre four seats allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private suite, allowing them to work, dine and socialise together.
