The Skytrax awards announcement comes after Air New Zealand was yesterday named ‘Best Airline’ at the Which? Awards in London, as well as the Air Transport World ‘Airline of the Year’ award it received in February.
"This is a fantastic achievement for Air New Zealand", says Mr Edward Plaisted, Chairman of Skytrax.
"They are clearly meeting and exceeding their customers’ expectations to have been named both the Best Airline Australia/Pacific, and then going on to collect the prestigious recognition of their staff, with the Staff Service Excellence Award.
"The awards represent a true recognition of the front-line product and service that Air New Zealand is delivering to customers, and the award slogan of ’The Passenger’s Choice’ underlines the fact Air New Zealand is clearly succeeding in satisfying the hardest critics - their users."
