Air NZ recognised again by Business Traveler Mag

Air New Zealand Recognised Again By Business Traveler Magazine

Air New Zealand has been named “Best Airline to the South Pacific, Australia, and New Zealand” in 2007 by Business Traveler Magazine in the United States.

Business Traveler Magazine has been a leader in recognising excellence in the industry for nearly two decades and last year also awarded Air New Zealand the same prestigious title - the first time the New Zealand carrier has won the award two years in a row.

Air New Zealand Group General Manager International Airline Ed Sims says he is delighted with this year’s award, which recognises the focus and significant investment the airline has put into developing a world-class service and product.

“This once again proves that the uniquely Kiwi experience we offer combined with a fantastic product sets us apart from our competitors,” he says.

“When we bring customers from the other side of the world to experience our own backyard we want the New Zealand experience to begin the minute they step onboard our aircraft – from our crew’s warm and welcoming attitude to a product that distinctively references New Zealand through wine and food, inflight entertainment and décor.”

Mr Sims also says that Air New Zealand has put a significant amount of effort into developing quirky promotional campaigns to capture the attention of potential customers in the US

“Getting cut-through in a massive, cluttered market like the US is really challenging for a small, niche airline like Air New Zealand and endorsements such as this by US Business Traveler magazine go a long way to creating awareness of our airline.”

The Business Traveler award is the latest in a string of accolades for Air New Zealand’s international services. It was recently named Australasia's Leading Business Class Airline at the 14th Annual World Travel Awards.
