The awards represent the opinions of nearly 29,000 Conde Nast Traveler readers who rate their experiences with various hotels, resorts, destinations, cruise ships and airlines. They are a trusted source of travel advice in the U.S. and throughout the world.

“We work hard to provide our customers with a uniquely superior, transatlantic travel experience,” said OpenSkies Chief Executive Officer Patrick Malval. “This award is a great indication that we’re doing just that and it’s something we will continue to do in the future.”

The Awards, published in the November issue of the magazine, ranked OpenSkies first with a score of 90.8, higher than any other airline in all three categories, with foreign airlines and U.S. airlines comprising the other two.

In order to provide a premium flight experience, OpenSkies customers can choose reclining flatbed seats in Biz Bed, or roomy Biz Seats that recline 140 degrees. Additionally, all passengers have access to pre-flight lounges, exceptional in-flight dining service and a selection of premium wine and champagne.

In October, OpenSkies became the first French flag carrier to offer the iPad® as a part of its in-flight entertainment offering. At the beginning of each trip, travelers are handed an iPad pre-loaded with 64GB of recent films, TV and games to use for the duration of the flight. In addition, a new customer guide provides a quick and easy introduction to the specially programmed iPad, as well as a list of entertainment choices.
