     GoAir Launches Flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi International Airport
Abu Dhabi Airports has welcomed GoAir’s launch of daily new flights connecting the two most important Indian cities - Mumbai and Delhi to the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi.
GoAir’s inaugural flight from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi was received with warmth and fanfare, as the Indian subcontinent remains one of the most popular destinations for travelers departing from the UAE. Delhi is the capital of India and Mumbai is considered as the financial capital of the world’s 6th largest economy.
Maarten De Groof, Chief Commercial Officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “I reiterate the fact that GoAir is our most promising new partner and we are pleased to welcome GoAir’s flights from Mumbai and Delhi to Abu Dhabi. India continues to be been one of our largest and most important areas of operations, and we and look forward to ensuring GoAir’s guests enjoy a comfortable and efficient experience throughout Abu Dhabi International Airport where we continue to deploy world-class smart travel solutions, attractive retail offerings, and relaxing lounge spaces.
“This additional service to Abu Dhabi reflects the capital’s status as a key destination and transit hub for business and leisure travelers, forms a part of our strategy to attract new airlines to our network, and will support tourism growth in the Emirate,” added De Groof.
Mr. Jeh Wadia, Managing Director of GoAir, said: “Our daily flights between Mumbai/ Delhi and Abu Dhabi is a manifestation of GoAir’s vision for the Middle East. Here we are, in less than six months, with a new set of routes that symbolizes business and leisure and also reminds us of the historically strong Indian–UAE relationship. GoAir is India’s fastest growing airline and we see Abu Dhabi as the logical extension of our operations. GoAir is delighted to work with Abu Dhabi Airports and its management. I welcome aboard passengers from Mumbai, Delhi and Abu Dhabi on daily direct flight services. FlySmart, fly GoAir.
Earlier this year, GoAir and Safar Travel & Tourism announced the inauguration of the airline’s first flight between Kannur International Airport and Abu Dhabi International Airport. GoAir is India’s fastest growing airline, committed to providing travelers value for their money through the highest standards of customer service delivery and affordable air fares. With its 50 Airbus A320 fleet of aircraft, the airline offers more than 270 daily flights and approximately 1,600 weekly flights across domestic and international destinations.

SWISS named Best Airline for Europe and to North & South America in the latest Business Traveller Awards
Zurich Airport, 14 January 2011
SWISS has again earned several distinctions in this year’s Business Traveller Awards. The readers of the German-based business travel magazine named the carrier ‘Best Airline for North & South America’. SWISS further garnered the ‘Best Business Class’ distinction on the same routes. The airline also triumphed closer to home, where it was declared ‘Best Airline for Europe’ for the fifth consecutive year.
SWISS clearly leaves its competitors behind on its European and North and South American routes – not just in terms of its seat pitch and overall cabin comfort, but also with its service on board and on the ground, for which the carrier secured a further number-one spot in the latest Business Traveller Awards.
The awards were presented in Frankfurt today. Sarah Klatt-Walsh, Head of Inflight, and Jochen Leibfritz, SWISS Country Manager Germany, accepted the distinctions on the company’s behalf. “These awards are a compliment to everyone at SWISS,” Klatt-Walsh said. “We work together day in, day out to offer our customers the best possible quality.”
“These Business Traveller Awards clearly confirm, too, that our continuous investments and endeavours on the product and service front are the right way to go, and are greatly appreciated by our customers,” she continued. “And they’re a strong incentive for us to continue to put all our efforts and energies into this same chosen course.”     
Zurich Airport, SWISS’s international hub, again earned first place in this year’s Business Traveller Awards as ‘Best Major European Airport and Hub’. 
The annual Business Traveller Awards are based on a survey of the readers of the reputed German-based business travel magazine, who are polled by an independent market research institute on various service providers within the travel sector.
