Cited For Work Towards Improvements In Relations Between The Two Countries
Air China received the Outstanding Enterprise Award-Bronze Prize at the 34th Canada China Business Council (CCBC) annual meeting in Montreal, Canada for its continuous efforts to improve products and services and contributions to relations between China and Canada. Mr. Xu Junhong, Air China Vancouver Office GM, received the "2011-2012 Outstanding Enterprise Award" plaque from Zhang Junsai, the Chinese Ambassador to Canada, in front of Canadian Governor General David Johnston and more than 300 guests from the business sectors of both countries.
CCBC is a non-governmental, nonprofit business association founded by Chinese and Canadian enterprises in 1978. It aims to develop deeper understanding of China-Canada trade, investment issues and establish business contacts. In 2008, it launched the biennial Outstanding Enterprise Award to recognize member companies that have promoted economic and trade relations between China and Canada. Prize winners are selected by an independent judging panel composed of experienced experts based on a set of stringent scoring rules.
Air China's Vancouver Office has continuously improved its services on the China-Canada route. The Premium Business Class was launched in 2011 to meet the demand of high-end customers and enhance Air China's competitiveness. Air China is also the first Mainland China carrier that has been granted Canada's TWOV/CTT status. Additionally, the Office supports local communities by participating in activities organized by local associations and chambers of commerce. It has cooperated with the BC Provincial Tourism Board to take advantage of local tourism resources, and has promoted and developed Canadian travel packages. The Office has also worked with the Canada Chamber of Commerce to promote Air China's Program for Small and Medium Enterprises.
Air China and the Vancouver Office's achievements are widely recognized by partners and travelers.
