The prestigious Global Finance magazine has announced its sixth annual ranking of the best companies worldwide, which highlights the most outstanding companies in key economic and productive sectors. The study, to be published in the November issue, rated LanChile the best airline among Latin American companies for the third year running. The analysis considered the opinions of major analysts, editors and specialized journalists, as well as experts from other areas who selected the best region and global companies.
The study evaluated different features to choose the winning companies. These included an increase in income and profitability; capitalization of market growth; social responsibility; percentage of earnings and employees outside the country where the firm is headquartered; achievements in terms of technology and new products: success in mergers and acquisitions; handling of crises and aggressive market development.
Luis Ernesto Videla, LanChile`s Chief Operation Officer said: “It is a great honor to receive this award for the third year in a row. It provides significant recognition of LanChile`s management and efficiency, and how successfully its professional team has dealt with the most complex scenarios. Undoubtedly, this reaffirms our ongoing commitment to providing our passengers and customers with excellent service to the highest safety standards.”
