Etihad Airways has been recognized as “Best Airline in the Middle East” by the readers of U.S.-based Premier Traveler magazine.
The award was presented at Premier Traveler’s “Best of 2014 Awards Gala” yesterday, December 4 at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles. A survey of more than 10,000 of the magazine’s readers determined the award winners.
“At Etihad Airways, we benchmark against not only the best airlines in the world, but the very best within the hospitality industry, including five-star hotels, restaurants and resorts,” said James Hogan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways.
“Our aim is not to be the world’s biggest airline but to be the very best in class as determined by our guests traveling with us across every cabin of service. The secret ingredient to all of this remains our employees who are the ambassadors of the Etihad Airways brand on the ground and in the air. This award is a testament to their dedication and commitment to excellence and we are honored to be named Best Airline in the Middle East by the readers of Premier Traveler magazine.”
Etihad Airways continues its rapid expansion within the U.S. this year, doubling the total number of cities the airline serves to six with its most recent launch of new daily, nonstop service to San Francisco on November 18 and nonstop service to Dallas/Fort Worth on December 3. Guests traveling between cities within America, including Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, D.C., can also connect to the airline’s home of Abu Dhabi, a rapidly growing, globally competitive aviation, cultural and economic marketplace, onto the world.
