Air New Zealand has once again been recognized for its outstanding product and service in the second annual 2018 Travelers’ Choice Awards, with significant wins across multiple categories.

The airline has been ranked second of all airlines globally as well as taking out Best Airline in the South Pacific.

Air New Zealand was also awarded top honors in the following categories:
