India's largest private air carrier Jet Airways has been honoured with the Avion Award for the Best Overall In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) for small airlines worldwide.
"Jet Airways was judged on the basis of its commitment to excellence in creating one of the most comprehensive in-flight entertainment systems in the world with some of the most special and unique programming features," the company said in a statement in Mumbai on Wednesday.
The award was given at the Annual Conference and Exhibition of the World Airline Entertainment Association (WAEA) in Toronto recently.
Jet Airways was adjudged the best airline by Skytrax, the leader in airline passenger opinion studies about in-flight entertainment, which assessed the winners from a two-month survey of more than 36,000 airline passengers worldwide.
WAEA, a non-profits organisation, is the official worldwide network representing nearly 100 airlines and over 250 airline suppliers, committed to excellence in in-flight entertainment and communications and the continual improvement of the airline passenger environment.
