Cathay Pacific’s expertise in selecting the world’s finest wines for passengers was recognised at the annual Cellars in the Sky Awards held in London on 6 February.
CX won the Most Improved Business Class Cellar award as well as the Best First Class Fortified Wine for the Ramos Pinto 10 Years Quinta Da Ervamoira at the competition, organised by Business Traveller magazine. The Champagne Amour de Deutz 2002 was runner-up in the Best First Class Sparkling Wine category.
Manager Catering Services Charles Grossrieder says the awards acknowledge the skill and dedication of the airline’s wine experts. “We aim to provide passengers with a superior travel experience which includes offering the chance to sample some of the world’s finest wines and matching these perfectly with the unique flavours of our inflight cuisine,” he says.
Business Class passengers are now enjoying products from two leading US skin care companies – Murad and Dermalogica – contained in new trendy designs by renowned French fashion brand agnès b.
The women’s bag comes in red or black and features the iconic Eiffel Tower, while the men’s bag comes in black with either the brand’s stylish lizard logo or the signature “b.” symbol.
