The Best Airline Alliance trophy was received on behalf of oneworld by Vice-President Corporate Affairs Michael Blunt from Skytrax Chairman Edward Plaisted at a ceremony on the sidelines of the global Aircraft Interiors Expo at Hamburg.

 

Skytrax Chairman Edward Plaisted said: "This is a fantastic achievement for oneworld to be named Best Alliance.  The World Airline Awards are known as 'The Passenger's Choice', underlining the fact that oneworld is succeeding in satisfying the hardest critics - actual air travelers."

 

oneworld Vice-President Corporate Affairs Michael Blunt said: “oneworld aspires to be the world’s premier alliance, so we are thrilled to be judged the best by the people who really count - customers - in the biggest ever independent survey of international air travelers. We’ll be working hard to retain this coveted title in the future, with two more top-ranking airlines joining our collection of the highest quality carriers from each region - in Russia’s leading domestic operator, S7 Airlines, boarding oneworld later this year and India’s leading carrier Kingfisher Airlines lining up to follow.”

 

About the World Airline Awards

The World Airline Awards, established in 1999, are based on the annual World Airline Survey conducted by Skytrax, the independent airline quality organization. The 2009-2010 survey covered more than 200 airlines, from the largest international airlines to domestic carriers, throughout the world.  Air travelers of more than 100 different nationalities took part.

 

The survey measures almost 40 different items of customer satisfaction for each airline's product and service standards, assessing the typical customer experience across airport and on board environments - from check-in to boarding, seat comfort, cabin cleanliness, food and beverages, in-flight entertainment and many aspects of staff service.
