MONTREAL, July 22, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Air Transat was named Best North American Leisure Airline and ranked second in the world's best leisure airlines at the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards, held on July 15, 2014.
Distinctions were based on a survey analyzing the satisfaction of more than 19 million customers, who rated more than 240 airlines on 41 different aspects related to the products and services that make up the passenger experience, from cabin seat comfort to staff service.
"We are very proud to receive this distinction for a third consecutive year. The World Airline Awards are one of the most prestigious honours an airline can receive, and the fact that this award recognizes the quality of our inflight service and our recently redesigned cabin makes it all the more important," commented Jean-François Lemay, General Manager, Air Transat.
In June, Air Transat was also named best charter airline for the seventh year in a row by Canadian travel agents at Baxter's Agents' Choice Awards.
