Qantas has been recognised, for the eighth consecutive year, as being the Best Pacific Airline at the 24th Annual Travel Trade Gazette (TTG) Travel Awards.
Qantas Regional General Manager for Asia, Nick McGlynn, said Qantas was delighted to have been recognised by Travel Trade Gazette.
“As an indicator of customer satisfaction, for Qantas to be recognised as the best in the Asia-Pacific region reflects our investment in creating great travel experiences,” said McGlynn.

“Winning this award for the eighth year in a row is a tribute to our team and our valued industry partners, for their ongoing support and drive to consistently deliver outstanding service to our customers.
“Earlier this year, we announced more seats and an improved schedule for Qantas flights to Singapore, Hong Kong and Bangkok, the first phase in our strategy to be the first choice for travel between Australia and Asia.
“Asia continues to be one of our key markets. We have opened a multi-million lounge in Singapore, with another due to open in Hong Kong in the first quarter of next year.
“From late 2014, we will be introducing our refurbished A330-300 aircraft, which will operate on key Asian routes. The new Business Class seats, that can be left in a recline position for take-off and landing, will be a key point of difference between Qantas and other carriers flying into Asia,” added McGlynn.
Qantas International offers 130 flights to Asia every week, with direct flights to 11 cities, and fares available with partner airlines to over 120 more cities in Asia.
