Air Pacific has again been ranked among the Top 10 Small Airlines of the world in the prestigious annual Condé Nast Travellers’ Readers Choice Awards, with the Fijian national carrier ranked 5th, moving two spaces up from last year’s position.
“We are honoured and delighted by this terrific recognition for the second year running. This award is, yet again, testament to the professionalism of our people and their commitment to providing our passengers with a superior travel experience centred on Fiji’s legendary hospitality and authenticity,” said Air Pacific Managing Director and CEO, Dave Pflieger.
“It is fantastic that travellers all over the world registered their appreciation for our service and reliability as well as our complimentary in-flight meals, drinks, entertainment, Nadi airport lounge, and our special treatment of Business Tabua Class passengers.
“Condé Nast Traveller readers are seasoned and sophisticated travellers with high expectations, so it means a great deal to all of us that our efforts to transform Air Pacific are being recognised. With improvements to our schedule, new business partners, and plans underway to modernise our fleet, we have a lot more in store for our customers, and we look forward to delighting them further as we complete our transformation to Fiji Airways in 2013 and move forward to become the preferred airline in the South Pacific,” the airline’s CEO said.
Air Pacific is in the final stages of its transformation, which includes rebranding and a return to its 1951 name of Fiji Airways. This year, it revealed its new brandmark in May, followed by the unveiling of the interior designs and external livery of the incoming Airbus A330’s.
A record 46,476 readers voted in this year’s Best in the World Condé Nast Traveller survey.
