HAIKOU, China, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hainan Airlines was honored as the 2013 "Best Airline in China" separately by both Global Traveler and Premier Traveler magazines. The award ceremonies were held on December 5 and December 10 respectively in Los Angeles, attended by Joel M. Chusid, Executive Director United States for Hainan Airlines.
Hainan Airlines officially entered the North American market in 2008, and currently operates direct routes from Beijing to Toronto, Seattle and Chicago, and will launch non-stop service to Boston next year. Mr. Chusid commented, "Hainan Airlines has been named the 'Best Airline in China' twice by Premier Traveler and three times by Global Traveler. I believe that more members of the flying public across North America will come to know Hainan Airlines, and as they learn more, come to select Hainan Airlines as their preferred carrier for connections between China and the US or other North American destinations."
As internationally renowned business travel magazines, Global Traveler and Premier Traveler target high-end frequent business travelers. Over several months, the two publications solicited readers' opinions through questionnaires which comprehensively evaluated airlines' performance in terms of service quality, staff and frequent traveler programs. Hainan Airlines was selected as this year's "Best Airline in China" by each magazine for service quality and outstanding reputation.
Since inception in 1993, Hainan Airlines has proactively and innovatively been dedicated to making passengers feel welcome and assuring them the most comfortable travel experience through high-quality services and by adopting best practices from a long tradition of Oriental hospitality.

Hainan Airlines also won WTA's awards for World's Leading Economy Class and Asia's Leading Economy Class 2013, as well as ITCA's 2013 Mercury Award for On Board Service.
