Etihad Airways is Middle East’s top airline again

Etihad Airways, of the United Arab Emirates, once again dominated the regional skies by winning its sixth straight award for best airline in the Middle East.

The airline won the World Travel Award for Middle East’s Leading Airline 2012 in Dubai in the same week Etihad Airways announced it had bought a stake in Ireland’s Aer Lingus.

The company also received awards for Middle East’s Leading Airline First Class, Leading Airline Inflight Entertainment and Leading Cabin Staff.

“This is also the sixth year in a row that we have taken home the regional honours for Leading Airline First Class and the third year in a row to be recognised for Leading Cabin Staff,” Etihad Airways president and chief executive officer was quoted as saying in regional media.

“Such accolades in our home market – a very competitive market – are a huge accomplishment. The Etihad Airways brand has now clearly been cemented among the world’s best, and we are recognised for our commitment to providing inspiring experiences and the best of modern Arabian hospitality.

“It is rewarding to see our investment in crew training and product development paying off, as demonstrated by customer satisfaction. Being the airline of choice for our customers is our focus.”

The World Travel Awards is hailed as the travel industry’s equivalent of the Oscars. Passengers and travel agents from 160 countries vote for the winners.

The airline also earned honours at the 2012 Business Traveller Middle East Awards on April 29, when it won Airline with the Best Economy Class and Airline with the Best Cabin Crew.

On its 2.987 per cent stake in Aer Lingus, Etihad Airways said it reflected its desire to have a commercial partnership with the Irish national carrier.
