Qatar Airways has been ranked among the world’s most valuable brands for the first time, becoming the only Qatari company to be represented in the 2016 top 500 global brand ranking.

Brand Finance, a world-leading independent brand valuation consultancy, listed Qatar Airways as one of the most powerful global brand in the annual ranking. The UK-based company is widely recognised as conducting highly extensive analysis of the world’s most successful businesses to produce a definitive list of valuable brands.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways is one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, operating the youngest fleet in the skies, awarded Airline of the Year on three occasions as well as Best Middle East Airline nine times by Skytrax. Our position as one of the world’s most valuable airline brands is testament to our renowned hospitality and dedication to providing our passengers with outstanding service.”

Salam Al Shawa, senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications at Qatar Airways said: “This honour is especially meaningful, having just launched the latest evolution of our brand in our Going Places Together campaign, which has seen an incredible level of support and engagement from our fans and passengers.”

Qatar Airways is the fourth Middle Eastern company and the ninth airline to earn a spot in the 2016 Global 500 list. It has a fleet of 176 aircraft flying to more than 150 key business and leisure destinations across six continents. The Qatar Airways Cargo fleet now includes six Airbus 330, eight Boeing 777 freighters and one Boeing 747 freighter.
