Etihad wins leading airline at WTA

31st May 2007

Etihad Airways has won the highly
coveted “leading airline” award at the World Travel Awards for the Middle
East and Africa.Votes for the WTAs were taken from nearly 170,000 travel industry professionals from
around the world, of which 110,000 are travel agents.

The airline drew particular praise at the WTA ceremony for building a global flight
network of 42 destinations in as many months, which the awards’ organisers describe
as “an unprecedented achievement in the air travel industry.”



James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ chief executive, said: “This is fantastic news
especially in the face of strong competition from some very good airlines,
particularly those based in the Middle East.”



Etihad was also presented with the awards for “leading first class airline” and
“leading airline website” at the high profile ceremony at Abu Dhabi’s Emirates
Palace Hotel.


The ceremony was presented by American TV stars Jamie-Lynn Sigler, from “The
Sopranos”, and Chris Noth from “Sex and the City”.
