Travelers chose EVA Air for top honors in two categories of Global Traveler magazine’s 12th annual “GT Tested Reader Survey Awards.” More than 22,000 readers voted and EVA won in Best Airport Staff/Gate Agents and Best Airline for New Service Launch categories. The multiplatform publication is available by subscription in print and online at www.globaltravelerusa.com. Travelers can learn more about EVA, book and buy tickets, select seats and, with business class tickets, order meals atwww.evaair.com.
“Global Traveler readers have been impressed with EVA’s high level of service, growth through the years and the overall high quality of the product,” said Publisher and CEO Francis X. Gallagher. “GT also feels that EVA’s innovations and fun factor with the Hello Kitty-themed aircraft contribute to their brand recognition with our readers.”
Throughout all of its operations on the ground and in the air, EVA makes quality service and safety priorities. It launched Houston-Taipei flights in June with its second specially painted Boeing 777-300ER, the EVA Hello Kitty Shining Star Jet, and celebrated the new route with a standing-room-only opening event that included tours inside the aircraft and selfie opportunities at every turn. The airline flies its other specially painted Boeing 777-300ER, the EVA Hello Kitty Hand-in-Hand Jet, between Taipei and Paris. And it treats passengers within Asia to the Hello Kitty Jet experience with five short-range Airbus airplanes.
EVA is consistently honored, awarded and recognized by travelers, media, industry experts and organizations around the globe. After ranking EVA Elite Class and Economy services in the top-10 “best for economy plus and economy class travel for 2015,” AirlineRatings.com has repeated its 2014 rating and, after again evaluating quality of service, products, equipment and safety, counted the carrier among the world’s top-10 best airlines. SKYTRAX also ranked EVA as one of the “World’s Top-10 Best Airlines” and the number one airline for “Best Airline Cabin Cleanliness” for 2015, based on its prestigious annual quality satisfaction survey of travelers worldwide.
The open-ended “GT Tested Reader Survey” is available for readers to vote from January through August every year in the magazine and online. Editors revealed this year’s survey results in the December issue, available now, and presented awards at a gala event staged at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA on Tuesday, Dec. 8., 2015. GT readers are frequent business and premium travelers.
