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.
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.
Air Finance Journal gave us the annual award for the most distinguished and financially efficient airline worldwide. The report included extensive analysis of the reasons RJ won the award, described our recent achievements as a polestar to all observers of the air transport industry, and pointed out we had doubled in size between 2001 and the end of 2007.
Royal Jordanian received the Gold Award for Best Website in the Transportation category of the Jordan Web Awards 2006 Competition. Experts in web design and programming from around the region acted as judges, taking into account criteria such as creativity, ease of use, structure, visual design solution and interactivity.
