· Qantas: Best Business Class to Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific

· Qatar Airways: Best Business Class to Africa & Best Business Class to the Middle East

This latest award for oneworld comes just over a month after it was named World’s Best Airline Alliance in the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2021, following a 23-month-long customer survey.

In addition, oneworld is the winner of several airline alliance awards announced in the past year: Best Airline Alliance in the 2020 Business Traveller Awards, Best Airline Alliance in the 2020 Global Traveler Tested Reader Survey Awards and Best Alliance in the Global Traveler Wines on the Wing awards.
