AIR SEYCHELLES PARTNER ETIHAD CAPTURES KEY SKYTRAX AWARDS AT PARIS AIRSHOW
(Posted 19th June 2013)
Etihad Airways, which holds a 40 percent stake in Air Seychelles, has yesterday reclaimed the trophy of ‘Best First Class’ for the fourth year running, but also added two more, ‘Best First Class Seat’ and ‘Best First Class Catering’ to their trophy cabinet. The airline’s COO Peter Baumgartner, in a media release received overnight, let his joy over the awards a free reign when he said: ‘It is a huge accomplishment to take home the top honours in every First Class category again, underlining our leading premium product proposition. Etihad Airways has, in just 10 years of operation, risen rapidly in the Skytrax rankings because we are continually investing in innovative new product and service concepts. We believe that world-class hospitality should not be limited to hotels and restaurants, so we are elevating the travel experience by bringing the best of hospitality to every touch point in the journey’.
Both Air Seychelles, with their A330-200 and Etihad, flying in code share with Air Seychelles but using A320 narrow body aircraft on the route, only offer business and economy class on the route, but passengers connecting in Abu Dhabi to Etihad flights – many are codeshared with Air Seychelles – can experience these award winning service levels when switching to First Class travel.
Congratulations to Etihad for these latest rewards for persistently high quality.
