Despite our aggressive international expansion, we have continued to focus on the domestic market, with these awards standing testimony to the excellence of our in-flight product and service. I would like to take this opportunity to dedicate this award to the Jet Airways family, without whose unceasing effort and dedication this would not have been possible".
