BEIJING, Dec. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The World Travel Awards (WTA) Grand Final Gala Ceremony 2014 was held at the Cuisinart Golf Resort & Spa in Anguilla on the evening of December 7th, at which the World Class Awards winners were announced. Hainan Airlines Co., Ltd stood out among 15 well-known competitors, both from within China and abroad, to win the World's Leading Airline-Business Class 2014 award.
On the heels of winning the WTA's awards for Asia's and World's Leading Airline-Economy Class last year, Hainan Airlines was awarded with Asia's Leading Airline--Business Class in October and World's Leading Airline-Business Class in December of this year.
Xu Fei, general manager of in-flight services at Hainan Airlines, said at the award ceremony, "We are very grateful for the organizing committee's recognition of our cabin services. We will continue to create innovative, high-quality and excellent travel experiences based on the service concept 'Oriental Beauty', and continue to be the airline of choice for travelers."
World Travel Awards founder and president Graham E. Cooke awarded the trophy to Xu Fei while offering his congratulations, saying: "Hainan Airlines plays a pioneering role in the aviation industry. The organizing committee awarded the honor to the airline and looks forward to seeing the airline introduce more innovative services and products, while continuing to provide excellent services as well as more convenient and better choices for travelers going forward."
In October of this year, Hainan Airlines differentiated itself from 15 well-known airlines to win the World's Leading Airline-Business Class award. Nominees included Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways and Air New Zealand, among others. Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways have been previous recipients of the award.
The airline's "Smile" concept is incorporated into every service offering, each of which complies with all international standards. The award is evidence of the judges' and the traveling public's recognition of Hainan Airlines.
WTA has been described as the "Oscars" of the travel and tourism industry by The Wall Street Journal and is regarded as an authoritative recognition of excellence in products and services across the world's travel and tourism industry.
