Etihad Airways wins Best International Airline at travel awards
Etihad Airways has won Best International Airline Award at the annual Condé Nast Traveller India Readers' Travel Awards 2016.
Now in its sixth edition, the Condé Nast Traveller India Readers’ Travel Awards recognise excellence across different sectors of the travel industry – from airlines, hotels and cruise lines, to destinations, spas and luxury resorts.
The latest honour comes in the same week as Etihad Airways won the world’s leading airline award at the World Travel Awards for the eight consecutive year during a glittering ceremony in the Maldives.
Etihad Airways’ renowned dedication to innovation, quality service and comfort was recognised in the Condé Nast readers’ poll carried out over two months. The airline was singled out for its revolutionary and best in-class innovative designs, together with offering a superior customer experience.
India is one of Etihad Airways’ key markets, operating 252 scheduled flights a week with strategic partner Jet Airways from 15 cities across the country to Abu Dhabi, with onward connections to destinations worldwide.
Neerja Bhatia, Etihad Airways vice president Indian Subcontinent, said: “It is a great honour for Etihad Airways to be recognised by travellers for reaching these heights in one of the most dynamic aviation markets in the world. This year has been extra special for us in India as we introduced our flagship Airbus A380 with award-winning interiors on the Mumbai – Abu Dhabi route.
Condé Nast Traveller represents the world of luxury and this award is testament to our world class product and service, as well as our commitment to the India market, recognising the passion and dedication of our employees here and globally.”
