Skytrax, the world’s most prominent consumer review of airlines and airports, has some more good news for Southeast Asia: Indonesia’s Garuda is the 2010 “World’s Most Improved Airline”.
UK-based Skytrax’s Chairman, Edward Plaisted, said it was Garuda’s improved onboard service that received most attention from travelers. The airline’s new planes and greater range of products also contributed to the award. A real process of transformation was happening at Garuda, he said.
“Garuda is considered to be one of the most successful and lucrative airlines in Asia,” said Garuda’s Vice President of Corporate Communications Pujobroto.
Runners up in the category were Hainan Airlines and Oman Air. AirAsia was given the Best Low Cost Airline award.
