The Kiwi airline beat last year’s world No.1, Singapore Airlines, to be named best airline in the world by editor-in-chief Geoffrey Thomas says Air New Zealand remains on top in virtually every category, an extraordinary achievement. “Air New Zealand is a clear industry leader which is remarkable when it is up against much larger global carriers. The airline is committed to excellence in all areas of its business with its employees across the globe consistently delivering exceptional customer service.”
