Etihad ranked among Top 3 airlines in the world

Having long been the premier carrier taking worldwide passengers to Dubai holidays in style, Etihad Airways has recently been ranked among the best three airlines in the world by leading Swiss business publication, BILANZ. The ranking comes following a survey of frequent flyers in Switzerland and after comparisons between different airlines were drawn by BILANZ journalists themselves. BILANZ also used recent international surveys such as the Skytrax ratings - in which Etihad was awarded World’s Best First Class by almost 18 million air travellers worldwide - to confirm the airline’s overall ranking in the different categories listed.

Being a proud representative of the unsurpassable level of luxury Dubai holidays offer, Etihad Airways, as well as being ranked third best airline in the world, it also ranked number one in the ‘Onboard Service’ category and second in the ‘Business Class’ category.

The Swiss BILANZ ratings are conducted annually, and the results are among the most highly regarded in the Swiss market.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer said: “I am very proud that in less than seven years, Etihad Airways has risen to be among the top three airlines operating to Switzerland, which is a very important market for Etihad. We are committed to providing the highest levels of service to our customers in Switzerland and we are thrilled to be recognised in this way.”

Etihad currently operates 5 return services per week to Geneva, on three class A330-200 aircraft.

Offering a superior product and service experience to its Swiss passengers and to all guests travelling to and from Geneva to Dubai holidays or any of the other popular Middle Eastern holiday destinations they fly to, the airline has recently introduced its ‘Inspired Service’ concept in Economy class as well as in its premium cabins, which seeks to provide all customers with service individually tailored to their needs.

Etihad Airways flights to and from Geneva also feature the innovative Food and Beverage Manager position in the premium cabins.In all cabins, Etihad offers its customers state-of-the-art, on-demand entertainment systems, allowing customers to enjoy the latest movies, TV shows, music and interactive games as well as recharge laptop computers and mobile devices. On the ground, Etihad offers its chauffeur service to guests travelling to and from Geneva International Airport, creating a smooth and convenient door-to-door service for its premium guests.

Etihad, which began flying less than seven years ago, was awarded three titles at the recent 2010 Skytrax awards: World’s Best First Class; Best First Class Airline Seat; and Best First Class Onboard Catering. This win built upon its success at the 2009 Skytrax awards where it won the Best Business Class and Best Business Class Catering categories. It also won the title of the World’s Leading Airline at the World Travel Awards (WTA) in November 2009, as well as six Middle East awards at the WTAs in May 2010.
