The oneworld® Alliance has been named Best Airline Alliance yet again in the Cellars in the Sky Awards, in recognition of the alliance’s member airlines having the best wine in-flight.
oneworld’s win in the awards, organised by Business Traveller magazine, marks the 12th time that the alliance has taken home the title. Several oneworld member airlines also received medals in the Cellars in the Sky Awards:
• American Airlines
• British Airways
• Cathay Pacific
• Japan Airlines
• Qatar Airways
Award winners were recognised at a special reception at the Meliá White House in London on Monday night, 20th of February.
Organised since 1985, the Cellars in the Sky Awards recognise the best wines served by airlines in first and business class. Winners are selected following blind wine tastings by a panel of judges who then score the wines independently.
oneworld Governing Board Chairman and Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “As the world’s leading airline alliance, we aim to excel in every area and winning the Best Airline Alliance award in addition to having seven members win at the Cellar in the Sky Awards is a huge achievement, clearly reinforcing our promise to pursue excellence at every opportunity and place our customers at the heart of everything we do.”
oneworld CEO Rob Gurney added: “This award for oneworld further exemplifies our member airlines’ commitment to offering customers a memorable experience when they fly with us. We are delighted that the Cellars in the Sky Awards have continued to recognise oneworld and our member airlines for offering the best wine in-flight.”
