Etihad Airways’ President and Chief Executive Officer, James Hogan, this evening accepted the prestigious Airline Market Leadership Award at Air Transport World magazine's 40th Annual Airline Industry Achievement Awards held in Singapore.
The magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Karen Walker, presented Mr Hogan with the award at a Gala Presentation Dinner at the Pan Pacific Singapore Hotel.
Mr Hogan said: “The Air Transport World Awards stand alone as a real emblem of excellence. In each category, you know that you are up against the world’s best and that you are being judged by a panel unmatched in its industry expertise.
“That is why we are so proud to be named Airline Market Leader in this 40th edition of the awards and why I am delighted to be accepting this award on behalf of our 17,600 people worldwide.”
The Airline Market Leadership Award recognised Etihad Airways’ success in operating a commercially focused, profitable business in 2013 and its innovative strategies which have proven to be game changers for the airline industry.
The Airline Industry Achievement Awards program, based in the United States, was created in 1974 to recognise excellence across a broad section of airline operations and is widely considered as one of the most coveted in the aviation industry.
James Hogan is in Singapore this week to attend the 40th Annual Airline Industry Achievement Awards and for a series of engagements to commemorate the airline’s seventh year of service to the island nation. The program includes a VIP cocktail party at The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore for diplomatic officials, local business partners and representatives from the Singapore media.
