Virgin Atlantic Earns More Praise with New "Best Airline" Award

The popular British carrier taking many to Caribbean holidays and Cuba holidays has scooped yet another award as “Best Airline” to add to its long list of prizes and titles earned throughout 2009. The new reconfirming title setting it unshakably at the top of the list of worldwide airlines was awarded due to Virgin’s recent success with a haul of travel industry award. In short, this latest “Best Airline” award was given in recognition of the many other travel awards the company has received in 2009, which include:

• “Best Scheduled Airline - Long Haul” – British Travel Awards
• “Best Business/First Class” – British Travel Awards
• “Best Transatlantic Airline” – World Travel Awards
• “World’s Best Advert” award - World Travel Awards
• “Best Airline” - Holiday Extras Awards

As one can easily observe 2009 has been a bumper year for Virgin Atlantic receiving worldwide appraisal and recognition as it picked up awards from Conde Nast Traveller, Sunday Times Travel Magazine UltraTravel, Business Traveller and SkyTrax to name a few.

“These recent awards are testament to Virgin Atlantic’s continued popularity and recognition as the world’s favourite airline. 25 years after our first flight this shows we are still red hot, offering passengers unbeatable and award-winning service on the ground and in the air.” commented Steve Ridgway, Chief executive of Virgin Atlantic.

Flying to many exotic holiday destinations worldwide and servicing as many as 30 long-haul destinations as far apart as Las Vegas and Shanghai, with the most recent addition of new services between Gatwick and Puerto Rico, the airline has pioneered a range of innovations setting new standards of service, which its competitors have subsequently sought to follow. Despite Virgin Atlantic’s growth the service still remains customer driven with an emphasis on value for money, quality, fun and innovation.
