Air New Zealand Link named Domestic Airline of the Year

Air New Zealand Link has been named Domestic Airline of the Year at the second annual Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Awards.

The awards honour businesses that lead their industry in customer satisfaction and are determined through the Roy Morgan Research Single Source survey of more than 12,000 New Zealand consumers annually.

Air New Zealand ranked highest in the survey every month in 2012 with Air New Zealand Link, which comprises Air Nelson, Eagle Airways and Mount Cook Airline, coming out on top a total of seven times and Air New Zealand’s Domestic jet services ranking number one for the other five months.

Air New Zealand Chief Operations Officer Bruce Parton says it is pleasing to see the airline’s commitment to the domestic market recognised through the awards.

“We pride ourselves on our world-class customer service and our ability to get our customers to their destinations safely and on time and continually look at ways to enhance the domestic customer experience.

“In the past 12 months alone we have reduced regional airfares by up to 20 percent and invested in seven new ATR72-600 aircraft which will add additional capacity and in turn more frequency for our customers,” says Parton.

Roy Morgan Research New Zealand General Manager Pip Elliott says “The New Zealand Tourism Industry is a tough place to be, and customer satisfaction is a crucial measure for hotels and airlines looking for a point of difference from their competitors.

“Now in only its second year, these Awards are already becoming recognised as currency in the travel and tourism industry, being the most accurate and trusted indicators of customer satisfaction in New Zealand,” says Elliott.

Air New Zealand received the award at a presentation in Auckland last night.
