Skytrax Best Airline in Eastern Europe and Best Premium Economy Onboard Catering awards went to...........

The Russian airline Aeroflot has won two categories at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2018 in London. In addition to being named Best Airline in Eastern Europe, Aeroflot took the award for Best Premium Economy Onboard Catering of any airline worldwide.

Aeroflot was named Best Airline in Eastern Europe for the sixth straight year and seventh time overall. The award for Best Premium Economy Onboard Catering represents a breakthrough for the Russian flag carrier. Previously the award had belonged to Singapore Airlines, recognized by many ratings as the finest in the world.

The World Airline Awards ceremony, which took place today in the Grand Ballroom of The Langham hotel in London on Tuesday, brought together senior executives of leading airlines from around the world.

"Aeroflot is continuing to steadily increase its collection of aviation Oscars," Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev said. "The Skytrax World Airline Awards that we have collected today show that our airline consistently maintains a level of service that is at a high international level. Moreover, Aeroflot is able to compete on an even footing with the strongest global airlines in a key area, namely the quality and variety of our in-flight catering. To receive this award is an honour for any of the world's airlines. For Aeroflot, it also pushes us to become better and more popular, and to offer more convenience in everything we do for our passengers, whose safety and comfort is our highest priority."

It is perhaps a fitting tribute for Aeroflot to be awarded these accolades in its 95th year of operation, especially considering the work that has been done in improving onboard catering. It is not surprising they scored so high with their premium economy onboard catering when you look at one of its menus
