Malaysia Airlines Gets ATW’s Phoenix Award

January 29, 2008

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 29 (Bernama) — Malaysia Airlines has been awarded the Phoenix Award by Penton Media’s Air Transport World in recognition of the airline’s transformation.

Air Transport World is the leading monthly magazine covering the global airline industry.

Malaysia Airlines managed to turn itself around through a restructuring programme that contributed to record earnings for the first nine months of 2007, without affecting its reputation for excellent service.

"We are delighted to be presented with this award which recognises the hard work of our employees, all of whom have contributed their hands and hearts in a collective effort to turn the airline around," said Malaysia Airlines’ managing director and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Idris Jala.

"This award will not be possible without them, and the support we have received from the Malaysian government and business partners," he said in a statement today.

He also said that the airline will transform itself into a five-star value carrier to deliver the highest quality services at affordable prices following the completion of its business turnaround a year ahead of schedule.
