Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), was named the ‘Airline of the Year’, ‘Cargo Operator of the Year (Commercial Airline)’ and ‘MRO Service Provider of the Year’ at the Aviation Business Awards 2014.
The awards, organised by
ITP Publishing, celebrate achievements within the Middle East aviation
industry, with winners being announced during a gala reception in Dubai last
night, attended by senior aviation executives from across the world.
An independent panel of
judges was impressed by Etihad Airways’ accomplishments over the past 12 months
in passenger operations performance, innovations in global air logistics, and consistently
high standards provided by Etihad Engineering as part of its maintenance,
repair and overhaul services.
James Hogan, President
and Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, said: “We are delighted to
receive these awards across three important areas of Etihad Airways’
“We strive for excellence
in everything we do knowing this is how we create the best possible experience
for our guests. These awards reflect the commitment and hard work of our people
and they should be justifiably proud of the results.”
The awards come a week
after Etihad Airways was named ‘Airline of the Year’ at the Arabian Business
Achievement Awards 2014.
