Air Canada recently became the only international network carrier in North America to get a Four-Star ranking. This was disclosed after a study conducted by an independent U.K. research firm Skytrax.
The Skytrax rating is much-coveted and considered an airline industry benchmark. The rating is based on detailed, independently conducted quality analysis by the UK research firm across more than 800 different areas of airport and onboard service and product delivery.
Calin Rovinescu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada, said that it is a matter of great delight that Air Canada is now the only international network carrier to have achieved this significant industry benchmark.
The business class flights conducted by Air Canada are most preferred by business travelers in Canada. According to the 2012 Canadian Business Travel Survey, more than 79 percent of frequent business travelers in Canada preferred to book business class tickets and travel by Air Canada. In 2012, the readers of Premier Traveler voted Air Canada "Best North American Airline for Business Class Service".
