Qatar Airways is the flag carrier of Qatar linking over 100 International destinations from its base in Doha. Using a fleet of 96 aircraft, the airline operates one of the youngest fleets in the world with an average age of less than 4.1 years, and it is one of the few airlines to fly to all six permanently inhabited continents. Qatar Airways is currently undergoing a major expansion and is one of the fastest growing airlines in the world.

Singapore Airlines is one of the world's leading carriers, flying to 5 continents across the globe. It was the first airline to operate the A380, and flies to 62 destinations in 35 countries on six continents from its primary hub in Singapore. It has a strong presence in the Southeast Asian region, which together with its subsidiary SilkAir, connects Singapore with more international destinations in the region than any other Southeast Asian airline.

Asiana Airlines is one of South Korea's two major airlines. The airline has its domestic hub at Gimpo International Airport and its international hub at Incheon International Airport. Asiana is a member of the Star Alliance and offers 516 daily departures throughout Asia, Europe, North America, and Oceania, operating 14 domestic and 85 international passenger routes.

Cathay Pacific Airways is the flag carrier of Hong Kong, with its head office and main hub located at Hong Kong International Airport. The airline's operations include scheduled passenger and cargo services to 114 destinations in 36 countries worldwide, including codeshares and joint ventures.

Thai Airways operates out of Suvarnabhumi Airport, and flies to 72 destinations in 35 countries, using a fleet of 85 aircraft. Thai Airways is one of the few airlines with a uniform change policy. International female flight attendants are required to change from their corporate purple suits (for use outside the cabin) into their traditional Thai dress prior to the general boarding of passengers.
