Air New Zealand’s premium on board wine selection has been recognised as one of the best in the world. UK Business Traveller magazine named Air New Zealand the winner of three awards in its annual Cellars in the Sky competition, the most awarded to any one airline in this year’s competition. The airline was awarded “Best Business Class Cellar” and “Most Original Business Class Cellar” and received “Best Business Class Red” for the Escarpment Martinborough Pinot Noir 2004. Other New Zealand wines that featured in the airline’s cellar were the Konrad Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2005 and the Cottage Block Marlborough Noble Riesling 2002. Air New Zealand Group General Manager International Airline Ed Sims said that 35 airlines has taken part in Cellars in the Sky, the most since the competition began in 1985. “This is the first time Air New Zealand has won the two overall Business Class awards and the second year running that we’ve won the Business Class Red award.
