In the eyes of the judges, Air New Zealand was the best airline in the world in the past twelve months.
The ATW judges lauded Air New Zealand’s industry-leading innovation and motivation of its staff, which had resulted in exceptional performance across the airline in market position, customer service, fiscal management and operational safety.
They described Air New Zealand as an industry trendsetter in a number of areas including product innovation and social media.
Judges were also impressed with the airline’s environmental initiatives including its commitment to operating a very young and highly fuel efficient fleet.
Air New Zealand Chief Executive Officer Rob Fyfe, who will travel to Singapore next month to collect the award, said today’s announcement came as a huge thrill.
“Winning ATW Airline of the Year in 2010 was in my view one of the greatest accolades that had ever been bestowed on Air New Zealand - in our industry it’s equivalent to winning an Oscar. To pick up the award again this year is simply outstanding.”
