Etihad Airways has been named Business Airline of the Year at the 2016 Business Travel Awards. The ceremony was held last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. The Business Travel Awards recognise the extraordinary achievements of the most deserving organisations and individuals in the business travel industry.
The awards, organised by Buying Business Travel Magazine in the United Kingdom, were voted for by an independent panel of travel experts. It is the first time that the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has won the award, adding to a list of prestigious accolades recently collected by the airline, including the ‘Innovation in Travel Award’ at the Globe Travel Awards, held in London last week.
James Harrison, Etihad Airways’ General Manager UK, said: “It is fantastic to gain the recognition of the UK travel industry and to win the coveted Business Airline of the Year award.
