Qatar Airways chief Akbar Al Baker named 'Aviation Executive of the Year'

  14.11.2017    

Qatar Airways group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, has been honoured as the 'Aviation Executive of the Year' by the CAPA Centre for Aviation. Mr Al Baker received the award at the organization's gala dinner held in Singapore as part of the CAPA Asia Summit 2017.
The award recognises Mr Al Baker's influence on the aviation industry, demonstrating outstanding strategic thinking and innovative direction in leading the growth of Qatar Airways' business and the wider aviation industry, reported Qatar Tribune.
Commenting on the award, Mr Al Baker said: "It is a tremendous honour to be named the 'CAPA Aviation Executive of the Year' in this, a very special year for Qatar Airways, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary.
"We have come so far in the past 20 years, rising from a small regional carrier to become a global airline, committed to innovation and to delivering the highest standards to our passengers. Not only as an airline, but as a nation, we are tremendously proud of this accomplishment."
CAPA Centre for Aviation's executive chairman Peter Harbison said: "Akbar Al Baker has not let Qatar Airways lose its shine during one of its most testing years. Under his guidance, the airline has recalibrated its network to function without access to several neighbouring countries.
"At the same time, Qatar Airways has continued its expansion plans and created new avenues for growth. He has turned a setback into an opportunity. This is truly a remarkable achievement."
Under Mr Al Baker's leadership, Qatar Airways has become the world's fastest-growing airline, operating one of the youngest and most technologically advanced fleets in the sky. Mr Al Baker was also elected chairman of the board of governors of International Air Transport Association (IATA), with effect June from 2018.
There was further cause for celebration as Qatar Airways also received the "Best Full Service Airline in West Asia" award for the third year in a row at the Future Travel Experience Asia 2017 awards that was held on the same evening in Singapore. Qatar Airways' home base, Hamad International Airport (HIA), was also named "Best Airport in West Asia" at that ceremony.
