AirlineRatings.com Editor-in- Chief and Publisher, Geoffrey Thomas, said: “Etihad Airways’ win was made possible by its attention to excellence at every level. This is also the reason why the Abu Dhabi flag carrier was named in our global Top Ten.
Etihad is only one of a handful that has also achieved a seven-star ranking for both product and safety with Airlineratings.com.”
Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive Officer, Peter Baumgartner, said: “To win Best First Class and Best Long Haul Airline Middle-East and Africa for the third consecutive year is a great honour and cements our position as a leader in innovative products, intuitive service and world-class hospitality.
“The awards also underscore our uncompromising commitment to engineering and operational excellence as well as safety which is, and will always be, our number one priority,” Etihad’s CEO added.
The 2017 AirlineRatings.com awards come just weeks after Etihad Airways received a
Skytrax Certified 5-Star Airline Rating. Skytrax also recognized Etihad as the World’s Best First Class Airline, World’s Best First Class Onboard Catering, and World’s Best First Class Airline Seat for its Airbus A380 First Apartment in July 2016.
