It seems whenever AirAsia appears at an award ceremony, the Malaysian-registered low-cost carrier leaves the room with at least one trophy. The same routine was repeated at this year’s ACW World Air Cargo Awards, held in Shanghai as AirAsia took home the Air Cargo Industry Customer Care Award.
Captain Nyok San, AirAsia head of cargo said upon receiving the award:
We are extremely proud to have been awarded the Air Cargo Industry Care Award by The World Air Cargo Awards. To have been selected by industry players to receive this award where we are judged alongside the world’s leading air cargo carriers is very special indeed. We are really passionate about customer service and we instill this in everyone in all of our staff.
The World Air Cargo Awards were held in two venues in Munich, Germany and in Shanghai, China and it covered a total of nine categories. The Cargo Airline of the Year 2016 went to Etihad Cargo, while Brussels Airport received the Airport of the Year 2016 award.
