Malaysia Airlines has been recognised for its excellent onboard wine selection at the Cellars in the Sky awards, receiving three gold medals, including the top prize and one bronze in its most successful showing to date.
The globally renowned contest recognises the best wine served by the world’s airlines during the previous year, with the winners announced last night at the Langham Hotel in London.
The Malaysian national carrier was awarded a Gold medal for its overall cellar, the awards’ top prize, and a Gold medal for its business class cellar. In addition to this, the airline received a Gold medal for its Taittinger Comtes des Champagnes (2007) in the Business Class Sparkling category, and a Bronze medal for the Palliser Estate Chardonnay (2016) in the First Class White category.
Daniel Bainbridge, Malaysia Airlines’ Regional Manager for the UK and Europe, said: “Malaysia Airlines is very proud to be recognised once again for our fantastic onboard wine selection, providing the ideal accompaniment to our world-class cuisine. A brand promise of Malaysian hospitality sits at the heart of all that the airline does and these awards are a testament to our commitment to this”.
The Cellars in the Sky is an annual wine contest for airlines hosted by the global travel magazine, Business Traveller. The contest has been running for 35 years, with applications from across the globe.
