In October, the latest iteration of the Business Traveller Awards was revealed. Voted for by readers, then authenticated by an independent audit company, the corporate traveler magazine annually ranks airlines, first-class cabins, business-class cabins, business hotels, luxury hotels, and more, both worldwide and broken down by region.
Qatar Airways took home four awards across all categories, including Best Airline and Best Long-Haul Airline, Best Business Class and Best Middle Eastern Airline. British Airways was another highly-recognized airline, winning Best Short-Haul Carrier, Best Frequent Flyer Program, and Best Airport Lounge. (Oneworld, which includes British Airways, was also named Best Airport Alliance.)
On the airport side, Singapore's renowned Changi Airport was named the Best Airport in the World by Business Traveller for the 32nd year in a row. For hotels, The Peninsula Hotels won Best Luxury Brand, while the brand's Hong Kong property was named the Best Business Hotel Worldwide.
Here are the winners, ranked, across select categories:
