Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, recently received the award for Best First Class Cabin at China’s 2013 Travel Awards.
The win acknowledges Etihad Airways’ commitment to delivering exceptional quality service in its luxurious Diamond First Class cabin, an announcement said.
The award for Best Class Cabin follows the UAE flag carrier’s clean sweep of the 2013 Skytrax World Airline Awards’ First Class category in June, when it received all three awards – Best First Class, Best First Class Seats and Best First Class Catering – for the second year in a row. This year’s Skytrax win also marked the UAE flag carrier’s fourth consecutive award of worlds’ Best First Class.
The China Travel Awards trophy will take pride of place alongside other first class wins in 2013 – World’s Leading First Class at the World Travel Awards, held in Doha in December 2013; and Middle East’s Leading Airline First Class at the World Travel Awards Middle East, held in May 2013 in Dubai.
The annual Travel Awards are a co-presentation of China’s Travel & Leisure magazine, Travel & Leisure Golf magazine, and the Travel & Leisure official website. Travel & Leisure magazine and its associated mastheads are among the most popular travel titles in China.
