Asiana Airlines Named Airline of the Year

Asiana Airlines Named AIRLINE OF THE YEAR by Air Transport World Magazine - New York, NY (January 28, 2009)

Penton Media’s Air Transport World, the leading monthly magazine covering the global airline industry, today announced the selection of Asiana Airlines as its Airline of the Year for 2009. Asiana, based in Seoul, South Korea, was recognized for its superb commitment to passenger safety and operational excellence as reflected in industry-leading dispatch reliability and engine inflight shutdown rates. The awards will be presented on February 17 in Washington, D.C., at ATW's gala awards dinner at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

ATW's editors noted that Asiana's dedication to operating at the highest level of safety is matched by its devotion to superb customer service. Its designation as one of only a handful of 5-Star Airlines by Skytrax speaks to that commitment as do its significant investments in inflight services and amenities and cabin attendant training. ATW's editors also took into account Asiana's financial performance, with aggregate earnings of $542 million between 2004 and 2007.
