RJ has been the proud recipient of both industry and customer satisfaction awards. This affirmation of our achievements has come from the air travel, customer service, tourism, web and business sectors. We are honored to be recognized by each of these awards, and strive to continue to uphold the standards that helped us achieve them.
We beat out eight regional competitors to win this award at the ceremony held in Dubai. The Pan Arab Web awards are presented in more than 30 sectors, including banking, health, transportation, journalism, services, governmental institutions and airlines.
We collected this prestigious award at a ceremony patronized by HRH Prince Faisal Bin Al-Hussein. The King Abdullah II Award for Excellence is designed to gauge the performance of both public and private sector institutions, and promote development. It is recognized as the highest level national award in Jordan.
Air Transport World (ATW), a leading monthly magazine covering the global airline industry, announced RJ as one of the 2007 ATW Airline Industry Achievement Award winners. These awards have been handed out annually since 1974. The magazine selected Royal Jordanian as the winner of the Phoenix Award, presented to airlines that have gone through a major transformation. ATW editors awarded us this prize in light of our past few years of success, after years of losses. They recognized the change in our business model to focus on traffic within our home market, returning us to profitability while nearly doubling in size. It is also recognized we were the first Arab carrier to join any of the global airline alliances with our membership in oneworld.
