HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — AirAsia has once again claimed the title "World's Leading Low-Cost Airline" at the World Travel Awards 2014 event, held on Anguilla on December 7.

This is the second consecutive year for AirAsia to be awarded the coveted title.

AirAsia topped the "World's Leading Low-Cost Airline" category, receiving the highest votes from travel professionals worldwide, beating other low-cost airlines such as Airberlin, EasyJet, Flydubai, JetBlue Airways, Jetstar Airways, Kulula, Mango, Norwegian, Ryanair and Southwest Airlines.

The World Travel Awards, hailed as the "Oscars" of the travel industry, recognises companies, organisations and brands that push the boundaries of industry excellence.

Datuk Kamarudin Meranun, co-founder of AirAsia, said: "We are humbled and grateful to receive this recognition for the second consecutive year. This award will never be possible without the hard work, passion, dedication and creativity of our 15,000 AirAsia Allstars. Each and every one of them should be proud that their commitment to the airline has once again put AirAsia on the world map."

AirAsia was also named the World's Best Low Cost Airline in the annual World Airline Survey by Skytrax for six consecutive years from 2009 to 2014. — VNS
