All Nippon Airways Named 2013 Airline of the Year
NEW YORK, Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Air Transport World®, the leading source of news, information and insight to the global commercial air transport industry, today announced the selection of All Nippon Airways (9202:JP) as its Airline of the Year for 2013 as part of the ATW 39th Airline Industry Achievement Awards.
Japan-based ANA is being honored for its exceptional financial performance, fiscal management, customer service and technology leadership that set the bar for the entire global airline industry.
This year's ATW Airline Achievement Awards winners also include former Lufthansa CEO and Star Alliance founder Jurgen Weber (Joseph S. Murphy Lifetime Achievement Award); Spanish low-cost carrier Vueling (Value Airline of the Year); Florida-based Silver Airways (Regional Airline of the Year); German flagship Deutsche Lufthansa (Airline Technology Leadership); KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (Airline Market Leadership); and Sweden's CTT Systems (Aviation Technology).
To merit ATW's Airline of the Year award, a carrier must demonstrate excellence and outstanding performance across the board. ATW editors look for superb innovation and leadership by executive management; strong financial discipline; a consistent and excellent safety record; proven leadership in community, eco and technology endeavors; and consistent high standards of customer service. ANA has achieved this despite a fiercely competitive home market, devastating natural disasters and political spats that have further hurt the marketplace.
"When you put in the kind of financial reports that ANA consistently posted through 2012 and provide excellent customer service despite a challenging market, that's the signature of a first-rate airline," said ATW Editor-in-Chief Karen Walker.
The awards will be presented at a Gala Presentation Dinner on the evening of March 26, 2013 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.
