Air Arabia, the first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and ‎North Africa, has won the coveted AVEX award for Best Regional Airline. The ‎award ceremony was the culmination of the AVEX event schedule and took ‎place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The prestigious AVEX award ceremony, ‎took place among the splendour of one of the largest air show and aviation ‎exhibitions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). ‎

The awards are designed to recognise safe, secure and sustainable ‎development of aviation industry; reward those companies that have attained ‎the highest standards of quality; and highlight the importance of, and the ‎opportunities offered by, continuous growth of aviation in the Middle East. ‎

‎“We are delighted to be named ‘Best Regional Airline,’ in what has been a ‎tremendous year for Air Arabia. This award is a reflection of our continued ‎commitment, not only to competitively priced air travel, but also to overall ‎quality of service and our contribution to the regional development of the ‎aviation industry,” said Adel Ali, Board Member and Chief Executive Officer of ‎Air Arabia.‎

‎ “We are especially proud of our staff, both in Sharjah and across the wider ‎region, who embrace a visionary approach to air travel and always strive to ‎set new benchmarks for the region’s airline industry,” he added.‎

This accolade, acknowledging Air Arabia’s contributions to the regional airline ‎industry, follows a string of other award decorations for the carrier in 2008. ‎

Last month the carrier won the World Travel Award for Best Low-Cost Carrier ‎in MENA. The prestigious ceremony, hailed as the Oscars of the travel ‎industry, was one of several fruitful venues for the LCC. In September 2008, ‎Air Arabia was named Best Low-Cost Airline in the Middle East and Africa at ‎the prestigious Budgie Awards, part of the World Low-Cost Airlines Congress, ‎held in London, UK. In May 2008, Air Arabia received the gold award in the ‎best airline category at the MENA Travel Awards 2008. ‎
