SkyWork Airlines has received a top award for its innovative, state-of-the-art Apple iPad in the Best Inflight Amenity (short-haul) category at the TravelPlus Awards in London, attended by airline and travel professionals including finalists from the world’s major international and regional airlines who had flown in from as far afield as Dubai, New York and Hong Kong.
SkyWork was a first time nominee for these awards. It is the first (and so far only) regional airline to offer a free tablet device onboard and was commended for its innovation by a diverse and distinguished panel of seasoned international traveller judges. “The judges loved the iPad and were very impressed that SkyWork was the first regional airline to introduce it and the only short-haul carrier to currently offer it on board,” said Tomislav Lang, CEO SkyWork Airlines.
The short-haul award category is new for 2012. Receiving the Award, Steven Sch?ller, online marketing and sponsoring, SkyWork Airlines commented, “I was delighted to pick up the award for the Best Inflight Amenity (short-haul) ahead of a record number of entries and such strong competition. This award represents the combined efforts of the entire SkyWork Airlines team. It is especially gratifying to have our achievements acknowledged by industry experts.”
SkyWork Airlines began offering its passengers Apple iPads in 2010.
