In line with Garuda Indonesia’s continuous service enhancement programme, its cabin crew has been voted The World’s Best Cabin Staff 2015 by Skytrax for the second consecutive year, beating other leading world airlines.
The World’s Best Cabin Staff 2015 award was presented by the CEO of Skytrax, Edward Plaisted, to Garuda Indonesia’s President and CEO, M. Arif Wibowo, today during The World Airline Awards 2015, which took place during this year’s Paris Airshow.
The accolade is awarded based on a global customer satisfaction survey conducted by Skytrax, of more than 18 million passengers. It covers 245 international airlines and measures standards across 41 key performance indicators of airline products and services.
Commenting on the honour, M. Arif Wibowo expressed his delight with Garuda Indonesia’s most recent achievement: “Garuda Indonesia’s success in winning The World’s Best Cabin Staff title once more reflects the tireless hard work and deep commitment from everyone at Garuda Indonesia, in particular our cabin crew, who work tirelessly to deliver a service of the highest standard to our passengers. We would also like to thank our loyal passengers for their continued support which has enabled us to win this title for the second year running,” said M. Wibowo.
“By offering our unique Garuda Indonesia Experience service concept that emphasises warm Indonesian hospitality and the best aspects of our cultural heritage, we are confident that Garuda Indonesia will continue to be ranked among the world’s best in the years to come,” added M. Wibowo.
