Air New Zealand on top of awards – again

Air New Zealand has once again won an award for being the best of the best.

AirlineRatings.com, the world’s only safety and product rating website has announced Air New Zealand as its Airline of the Year for 2020.

Air New Zealand is being honored for the sixth time for its record-breaking performance, multi award winning in-flight innovations, operational safety, environmental leadership and motivation of its staff. These factors have stamped the airline as a clear industry leader.

The AirlineRatings.com Airline Excellence Awards, judged by seven editors with more than 200 years’ industry experience, combine major safety and government audits, with 12 key criteria that include: fleet age, passenger reviews, profitability, investment rating, product offerings, and staff relations.

"In our analysis Air New Zealand came out number one in most of our audit criteria, which is an outstanding performance when it is up against carriers with more resources and scale,” says AirlineRatings.com editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas.

"Air New Zealand’s commitment to excellence in all facets of its business starts at the top with outstanding governance and one of the best executive teams in aviation through to a workforce that is delivering consistently to the airline’s strategy and customer promise," says Geoffrey.

Air New Zealand acting chief executive officer Jeff McDowell says winning the award for a record sixth time is a testament to the efforts of the airline’s 12,500 staff who are focused on delivering a world class uniquely Kiwi experience to its customers every day.
