AirAsia has re-written history yet again today by becoming the first low-cost airline to be awarded ‘Asia’s Leading Cabin Crew’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards (Asia & Australasia) Gala 2015.
Other airlines nominated in the ‘Asia’s Leading Cabin Crew’ category include Air India, Cathay Pacific Airways, China Southern Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Hainan Airlines, Hong Kong Airlines, Korean Air, Malaysia Airlines, Singapore Airlines, SriLankan Airlines and Thai Airways.
Tony Fernandes, Group CEO of AirAsia said, “I am very proud of what our team of cabin crew has achieved. Today is an example of what pushing the boundaries mean – we are not just a low-cost airline, but an airline that provides high value. Being awarded ‘Asia’s Leading Cabin Crew’ is testament that low-cost doesn’t mean compromise on quality.”
“Service excellence is something we have been focusing on and the win today shows that we are moving in the right direction. We would like to thank everyone who has voted for us, and a big congratulations to my cabin crew team. We are the first and only LCC to be nominated in this category and we won! Let’s continue to give our best to all of our guests,’ added Tony Fernandes.
The airline has also been nominated in four categories in the upcoming World Travel Awards 2015 to be held in December 2015. For the first time, AirAsia is nominated in the World’s Leading Cabin Crew, World’s Leading Low Cost Airline Website and World’s Leading Low Cost Airline App categories; while the nomination in the World’s Leading Low Cost Airline category is for the fourth consecutive year.
AirAsia was also named Asia’s Best and World’s Best Low Cost Airline by Skytrax for seven consecutive years from 2009 – 2015.
