For the third year in a row, Air Canada has been voted the “Best Airline in North America” by the readers of Global Traveler magazine in an international survey of frequent business travellers.
The Global Traveler Tested Reader Survey awards are based on the responses of more than 36,000 readers of Global Traveler magazine. Global Traveler readers are frequent premium travellers who average 32 round-trip flights a year, with 78 per cent regularly travelling in first or business class.
“A lot of business travellers connect through our major hub in Toronto, and for our Australian guests Vancouver is a great gateway to 58 destinations in the United States and 59 in Canada.”
Passengers travelling from Australia to USA with Air Canada can avoid long queues at Los Angeles Airport, and clear US Customs in Vancouver in transit.
Air Canada has renewed its international and North American fleets with new Boeing 777 and Embraer aircraft. Air Canada has also refurbished its existing fleet to offer all customers personal entertainment systems at each seat, fleet-wide on North American and international routes. Fleet-wide amenities include digital in-seat monitors with touch-screen controls offering hundreds of hours of audio and video on-demand programming, standard in-seat power within reach of every customer, lie-flat beds in Executive First suites, Air Canada’s international business class service, and the ability to collect and redeem Aeroplan miles.
Earlier this year, Air Canada was also named “Best International Airline in North America” in the 2011 World Airline Awards conducted by independent research firm Skytrax, in its worldwide survey of more than 18 million travellers.
