“This is a major accomplishment for our airline and one that we are very proud of,” said Turkish Airlines’ CEO Temel Kotil, Ph.D. “The results propel us to continue to deliver unparalleled service year after year to our global travelers.”
The results of the 2013 World Airline Awards were announced on June 18, 2013 at the Paris Air Show. “Best Airline in Europe” and “Best Business Class Catering” awards were presented to Turkish Airlines’ CEO Temel Kotil Ph.D. by Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted.
