Malaysia Airlines was voted the top airline by Asian business travelers, receiving two prestigious awards, “Preferred Airline for Traveling to the Middle East from South East Asia” and for operating the “Best Airport Lounge in South East Asia.”
The poll was conducted by Alpha South East Asia, a Hong Kong based investor-focused publication for its 2nd Annual Business Travel Poll.
Malaysia Airlines Commercial Director, Dato’ Rashid Khan said, “We are delighted with the poll results. We are consistently striving for service and product excellence, and the results are testament to our efforts to delight our customers.
“We are continuously looking at ways to offer Malaysian Hospitality at all our touch points and customers can expect more new and convenient offerings.”
Chief Executive Officer/ Publisher of Alpha South East Asia, Mr Siddiq Bazarwala said, “Corporate executives have unique expectations and are no longer interested in off the shelf services. Thanks to the its deeply committed roots in South East Asia combined with a strong cultural affinity with the Middle East, Malaysia Airlines is today the preferred choice for business travelers to and from the Middle East. The award for being the preferred airline for traveling to the Middle East from Southeast Asia is recognition of its out-of-the-box thinking and niche strengths”
He added, “All leading airlines have superior quality lounges in their respective airport hubs but in the case of the Malaysia Airlines Golden Lounge at the KLIA, it is a preferred choice of business travelers from throughout South East Asia, thanks to its focus on the tiniest of detail, overall comfort and endless pursuit of service excellence.”
The business travelers also voted Malaysia Airlines 2nd in the “Preferred Airline for travel within South East Asia” and “Best Economy Class service for Business Travel” categories.
