The award was presented to Emirates at TTG’s celebrated 16th Annual Travel Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner 2005 that was held in Pattaya, Thailand, and was attended by top executives from the world's leading airlines and travel companies. The awards were based on readers’ polls in both TTG Asia and TTG China.
Richard Vaughan, Emirates' Senior Vice President Commercial Operations East Asia and Australasia said: "We are delighted to be voted Best Middle East/African Airline for the third successive year, especially as Emirates continues to strengthen and streamline services to the Far East. The award represents a powerful endorsement from the travel trade, who recognise our commitment and service excellence.
"Industry partners play a pivotal role in our success, and Emirates will continue to work closely with the travel trade to deliver superior products and services to travellers."
