Emirates has been awarded Best Airline Food and Wine by the readers of Frequent Business Traveler, an online publication written for and by affluent frequent business travelers. The award was presented recently at a ceremony at The Penn Club in New York City.
“We will continue to push the limits and explore new ideas, to ensure we are offering our passengers a dining experience that is comparable to some of the finest restaurants in the world,” said Robin Padgett, Emirates Divisional Vice President, Catering.
The Frequent Business Traveler GlobeRunner Awards recognize the world’s best airlines, hotels chains, automobile manufacturers, car rental agencies, luggage manufacturers, and travel websites. Voting was conducted online from 9 January through 15 March 2013, and over 110,000 votes were cast by readers.
“Our readers’ very selective preferences combined with their extensive patronage of hotels, airlines, and everything travel-related make their votes particularly meaningful,” said Jonathan Spira, Editorial Director of Frequent Business Traveler.
