Quips about high-flying kangaroos were unavoidable at last night’s annual Roy Morgan Customer Satisfaction Awards, with Qantas taking out both domestic categories.
Amid recent news its financial fortunes are turning around after some tough times, Australia’s longest-running airline proved it’s still got what it takes to keep its customers satisfied.
Winning both the Domestic Airline of the Year and the Domestic Business Airline of the Year, Qantas was a worthy victor, topping these categories for most months of 2014.
Perennial favourite Singapore Airlines struck gold for the third year running in the competitive International Airline of the Year Award. Clearly, the airline takes its slogan ‘A great way to fly’ very seriously.
Tourism and Travel winners:
- Domestic Airline of the Year Qantas (domestic)
- Domestic Business Airline of the Year Qantas (domestic)
- International Airline of the Year Singapore Airlines
Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan Research, says:
“By winning the Domestic Airline of the Year for the second consecutive year, Qantas has shown the country that it’s back on top and doing what it does best: making air travel enjoyable for its customers.
“Its first-time win in the Domestic Business Airline of the Year category is another sign that Australia’s favourite home-grown airline is flying high.
“Singapore Airlines’ third International Airline of the Year Award begs the question: can this airline do any wrong? If only all international air travel was so pleasant.
“Our winners’ dedication to consistent excellence in customer satisfaction sets an impressive benchmark for the industry, and we congratulate them.”
