Qatar Airways Wins Double Gold Award For Premium Sleeper Suits And Children’s Activity Kit At Travelplus Awards 2016
Airline’s designer in-flight premium amenities earn second consecutive win. Qatar Airways’ refreshed children’s activity kit, featuring Hasbro’s Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head, take first place
Qatar Airways’ premium in-flight services have proven, once again, to be a favourite with global travellers as the international airline has been awarded two best-in-class accolades recently at the TravelPlus awards ceremony in Hamburg, Germany.
Qatar Airways received two TravelPlus Airline Gold Awards; the first for its signature Missoni sleeper suits, as well for its recently launched Hasbro children’s activity pack.
Qatar Airways’ Senior Vice President of Customer Experience Mr. Rossen Dimitrov said: “We are very proud, once again, to be honoured for delivering outstanding customer experience for all our passengers travelling together with Qatar Airways. Both awards recognise the airline’s high quality service and standing as a world-class airline.
“From First Class luxuries, to family fun, our in-flight amenities are designed to make every passenger’s journey more comfortable and add a special touch by becoming great souvenirs of their flight with Qatar Airways.”
Qatar Airways won gold in last year’s TravelPlus Awards for its exclusive Italian designer Giorgio Armani Fragrances and Beauty First Class Male amenity kit and the Business Class Middle East amenity kit. Assessment for the acclaimed industry awards focuses on the wishes and needs of travellers, with selection criteria adhering to trend, pleasure, luxury, usability and style, all from a traveller’s perspective.
Renowned for its hospitality, Qatar Airways offers First Class passengers on overnight flights stylish and luxurious sleeper suits and slippers designed by Italian fashion house Missoni. The exclusive Missoni sleepwear offers comfort and promotes relaxation throughout passengers’ journeys.
The award-winning airline launched its new children’s activity pack on board its worldwide network in January 2016 in partnership with Hasbro Gaming to provide even more entertainment for its youngest guests. The new kits offer more levels of interactivity and playability than ever before, featuring exciting Mr. Potato Head plush toys and Hasbro Gaming brand board games, known for their suite of leading family entertainment properties. Featured titles include the world’s favourite family gaming brand, Monopoly, and long standing classics such as Twister, Guess Who and Connect 4. The activity kits are available on board and have been developed specifically for children from the ages of 0 – 2 years and 3 – 12 years.
A total of four different kits, each featuring a different type of game, are available to families flying to and from Doha on both long-haul and short-haul flights. Young travellers can explore and play with glow-in-the-dark toys and stickers, interactive bags, and a gadget stand. Kits for infants include a peek-a-boo Mr. Potato Head plush toy and soft books.
In addition, children-friendly meals can be pre-ordered and are served in vibrant and reusable Monopoly or Mr. Potato Head collectable meal boxes.
Mr. Dimitrov continued: “Building on the popularity that the Qatar Airways children’s activity kits have delivered for many years, we are excited to provide a fresh new offering to enhance the flying experience for the entire family. The new Hasbro Gaming activity kits and meal boxes are our most innovative so far, and provide plenty of educational fun and enrich the overall travel experience for our passengers – both parents and children.”
