Etihad Airways Wins 'World’s Leading Airline’ Award
Etihad Airways has crowned a momentous 2015 by collecting the coveted ‘World’s Leading Airline’ award for the seventh consecutive year at the annual World Travel Awards (WTA) Grand Final Gala Ceremony 2015.
Last night’s red-carpet event was held before an audience of the industry's leading luminaries and international media at the exclusive Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort, located in the Atlantic port city of El Jadida in Morocco.
The airline added to its winning streak by also picking up the awards for ‘World’s Leading First Class’, ‘World’s Leading Inflight Entertainment’, and ‘World’s Leading Cabin Crew’. The quartet of awards ends a remarkable year of achievement for the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, which included the entry into service of its flagship Airbus A380s and Boeing 787 Dreamliners, boasting the world’s most innovative and highly customised commercial aircraft cabins, newly designed products and inflight services, and the introduction of its new livery and uniform.
The awards cap off a successful month for Etihad Airways. On 4 December, the airline was awarded the highly prized Air Transport World (ATW) ‘Airline of the year 2016’ award, widely considered one of the most coveted accolades in the airline industry.
The airline also collected the award for Best First Class at the Ultratravel Awards held in Dubai, adding to an extensive list of major awards won globally by the airline throughout 2015.
