WTA was established in 1993 to acknowledge and reward the world's leading
players across the tourism sector. The awards are regarded globally as the
highest accolade in the sector and have been called "the Oscars of the travel
industry" by The Wall Street Journal. WTA sets awards for all regional
categories, and winners are selected based on votes cast globally by industry
professionals and consumers online. It is one of the most prestigious awards
programs in the tourism industry. This time, Hainan Airlines distinguished
itself from the world's 12 other leading airlines, including British Airways,
Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines, Emirates Airlines and Virgin

"We know that the award is the recognition and appreciation by industry
professionals and consumers worldwide for the quality of Hainan Airlines'
economy class services. We will continue our commitment to high-quality air
services, and hope Hainan Airlines can become the first choice of an ever
greater number of travelers," Joel M. Chusid, Executive Director of Hainan
Airlines in the United States, said in his acceptance speech. Since its
inception in 1993, Hainan Airlines has, through a proactive and innovative
approach, been dedicated to making passengers feel welcome on its airplanes
and assuring them the most comfortable travel experience through its
high-quality services by adopting the best practices from a long tradition of
Oriental hospitality.

World Travel Awards President and Founder Mr Graham E. Cooke said: "It is no
surprise our voters have recognized Hainan Airlines as a global leader in the
aviation sector; their success is richly deserved and it would be no surprise
if we were to hear a great deal more from them here at World Travel Awards in
the future."

In addition to the award by WTA, Hainan Airlines recently won the
International Travel Catering Association (ITCA)'s Mercury Award in the On
