Less than a month after being named Airline of the Year, Qatar Airways introduces 24 new destination around the globe.

The continued growth of Qatar Airways in spite of regional political developments is a perfect display of Qatar’s strength and endurance.

With several destinations put on hold, the carrier is shocking the world with its continued success and expansion.

Just last month, the international air transport rating service Skytrax named Qatar’s national carrier Airline of the Year, as well as the world’s best business class and the best airline in the Middle East.

This month Qatar Airways announced that they had achieved 100 percent compliance in the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA), verifying their status as one of the world’s safest and most secure airlines.

Back in 2003, it was the first airline to complete the IOSA audit with 100 percent compliance, and kept the same standards throughout audits in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015.
