CAPA Global Aviation Awards for Excellence Recognises Top Leaders

British Airways, Swoop and Spirit Airlines have been recognised among the top airlines at CAPA’s annual Global Aviation Awards for Excellence in Malta on December 05.

The nine award categories covering airlines, airports and aviation leadership were presented at a dazzling ceremony at the Westin Dragonara Resort in St Julian’s, attended by over 150 aviation luminaries from across the globe as part of the 2019 CAPA World Aviation Outlook Summit.

Regarded as the pre-eminent awards for strategic excellence in aviation, CAPA first established the awards in 2003 to recognise successful airlines and airports based in the Asia Pacific region. The awards later expanded to the global stage in 2012 to acknowledge aviation excellence worldwide.

Peter Harbison, chairman, CAPA – Centre for Aviation (CAPA), said, “In the dynamic and ever-evolving environment of the aviation industry, CAPA’s Global Aviation Awards for Excellence serve as an opportunity to stop and recognise key achievements across our industry over the last 12 months and celebrate with industry peers.”

Tewolde GebreMariam, CEO, Ethiopian Airlines Group, said: “I am honoured to have received {an} award and I sincerely thank CAPA for the recognition. We at Ethiopian have achieved greater milestones as one family. I want to dedicate this award to my colleagues: more than 16,000 brave men and women around the world who always challenge themselves to soar higher with the mind-set that every step they take can become new history and milestone in today’s 21st century aviation business.”
