Cathay Pacific Airways has won the Best Airline - Business Class award at the TTG Annual Travel Awards 2001 held in Singapore. This is the ninth year the airline has picked up this prestigious award including the last six years in a row. The TTG Annual Travel Awards recognise outstanding individuals and organisations in the Asia Pacific travel industry. They are voted for by readers of TTG Asia and TTG China.
The award ceremony was held on Friday night during the PATA Travel Mart Closing Ceremony in Singapore.
Cathay Pacific`s Director and Chief Operating Officer Philip Chen said: “We are extremely pleased to win this award as the business sector is one of the most keenly fought over markets in the airline industry. This is a reward for our commitment to excellence and our unique service style of `Service Straight From the Heart`.”

Cathay Pacific`s Business Class provides passengers with a luxurious way to travel including excellent service, a wide choice of world-class entertainment, fresh regional cuisine, a choice of award-winning wines, and highly comfortable seating with plenty of legroom.
