Oasis Hong Kong Airlines was awarded "Best New Service" and "Best Business Class Carrier" at the 2007 World Low Cost Airline Awards, held in London on 18th September.

The airline, which started its service in October 2006 fought off tough competition from FlyZoom, MAXjet and Silverjet to take the coveted Best Business Class Carrier Award. It was also awarded Best New Service over Nok Air, Click Air, Go India, Sama Airlines, Silverjet and Fly Zoom.

Oasis Hong Kong has operated a daily service from London Gatwick to Hong Kong since October 2006 and added a new route from Hong Kong to Vancouver in June this year. Its pioneering business model combines low fares with a full service offer - hot meals and seat back entertainment are included in the ticket price.

The businessOasis offer allows business and premium leisure travelers to enjoy the benefits of a business service to Hong Kong for just ฃ 470 + tax one way. The ticket price includes a dedicated businessOasis check-in area, two gourmet meals with the choice of an Asian or Western menu, 28 video / audio channels, a personal seat-back TV and electronic reclining sleeper seats with a 60" seat pitch which is comparable to other airlines.

Steve Miller, CEO says: "We are extremely proud to be recognized for our achievements within our first 11 months of operation. The Best Business Class Carrier award is a great accolade as it shows businessOasis rivals the offer of specialist business class carriers. Over 153,000 passengers on 574 flights have now experienced our low fare, full service offer and we plan to continue exceeding expectations by providing the best service both on the ground and in the air."
