OAG Aviation has chosen the winners of the annual aviation awards with accolades going to Singapore Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Continental
OAG has announced the winners of the 2009 OAG Airline Industry Awards. Known as the “Oscars of the Airline Industry,” 2009 marks the 27th anniversary of the awards, which are significant and valued in the airline industry because the awards are voted for by frequent flyers around the globe. The OAG Airline Industry Awards demonstrate OAG’s commitment to the airline industry by recognizing excellence in air travel.

Winners of the 2009 OAG Airline Industry Awards include:

· Airline of the Year: Singapore Airlines
· Best Transatlantic Airline: Virgin Atlantic
· Best Business Class: Continental Airlines
· Best Airline based in North America: Continental
· Best Airline Based in the Middle East/Indian Sub-Continent: Emirates
· Best Low-Cost Airline: Southwest
· Best Airline Based in Central South America & Caribbean: LAN
· Best Airline based in Africa: South African Airlines
· Best Airline Based in Central/Eastern Europe: CSA Czech Airlines
· Best Airline Based in Australia/Pacific: Qantas

“We are proud to distribute the 2009 OAG Airline Industry Awards to airlines and airports who work hard every day to give travellers the best flying experience possible,” said Peter von Moltke, CEO of UBM Aviation.

Winners are chosen by asking frequent flyers to consider which airlines they have flown in the past 12 months in each of the award categories and rank their top three airlines for each category. All votes were cast online. The results were calculated using a ratio of “mentions to best,” taking into account how many times an airline was voted 1st, 2nd or 3rd by each traveller. All votes were analysed by OAG to ensure that they were placed in the correct category and to guarantee that all airlines and airports, irrespective of size, competed on a level playing field.
