Air New Zealand has done it again!

For the fifth consecutive year, Air New Zealand has been awarded Airline of the Year in airlineratings.com’s “World’s Best Airlines for 2018” Awards.

Airlineratings.com explains its choice, saying that Air New Zealand won “for its continued record-breaking financial performance, in-flight innovations, environmental leadership, young fleet and motivation of its staff. ” The award takes into account many factors, including safety ratings, age of the fleet, and passenger rating.

Air New Zealand also won Best Premium Economy. All of us at Esplanade can attest that Air New Zealand is one of our favorite airlines to fly! Other winners include Esplanade favorites Qantas, Virgin Australia, Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, and Norwegian.
