The World Travel Awards recognise travel brands that have made the greatest contribution to the travel industry over the past year. Other notable New Zealand winners this year include Auckland as Australasia’s Leading Destination and Tourism New Zealand as Australasia’s Leading Tourism Board.
Air New Zealand CEO Rob Fyfe says receiving the accolade as Australasia’s leading airline for the fourth year in a row reflects Air New Zealanders’ commitment to delivering a world class and uniquely Kiwi service to customers.
“For Air New Zealand be recognised as the number one airline in Australasia not once, but four times is quite extraordinary,” says Mr Fyfe.
“Australasia is a very competitive market and this award is testament to the continued hard work and passion of our 11,500 staff throughout the world,”
Winners of the Australasian awards will be put forward for the WTA Grand Final with global winners announced in New Delhi, India on 12 December.
Air New Zealand currently also holds the title of Air Transport World Airline of the Year.
