“These awards are also a welcome boost for our staff who have done an excellent job and continued to provide passengers in the UK with an award-winning service,” he continued.

The Business Traveller awards are amongst the many accolades Singapore Airlines has received this year.  Singapore Airlines came first in the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller 2005 Awards for the category of Long Haul Leisure Airline, scoring top marks for punctuality, efficiency and services, including child-friendly facilities.  It was also named Best Major Airline at The Wanderlust 2005 Travel Awards.  While readers of Holiday Which? magazine voted SIA Most Highly Recommended Airline and the Airline won Best Airline based in Asia and Best International First Class at the 2005 OAG Awards.
