Congratulations to Jet Airways, which has been voted as the ‘Airline with Best First-Class Service in the World’, by readers of the prestigious Business Traveler magazine, at the 20th Annual ‘Best in Business Travel’ Awards.

Menu choices are exquisite and extensive, and plated on hand painted Bernardaud porcelain dinnerware. Passengers may also choose from the finest of French champagnes, including vintage Dom Perignon and Krug, the finest wines from around the world and a library of single malt whiskies, all served in Mikasa crystal.

Jet Airways’ First Class product is available on the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, currently deployed on the airline’s long-haul services to North America and the UK.

Speaking on the victory, Mr. Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, CEO, Jet Airways said, “Jet Airways’ is arguably the finest First Class product in the skies today. The airline has invested a lot of time and money in the development of the same, and this award is a proud affirmation of the quality of our product.”
