The winners of Business Traveller’s Cellars in the Sky Awards 2022 have been announced, sponsored by Whispering Angel.
This year saw Singapore Airlines walk away with five Gold Medals, for Best Business Class Red, Best Business Class Cellar, Best Overall Cellar, Best Presented Business Class Wine List, and Best Presented First Class Wine List.
Meanwhile Qantas took Gold Medals for Best Business Class White, Best First Class White and Best First Class Cellar, Qatar Airways won Gold for Best First Class Fortified / Dessert Wine, British Airways took home a Gold Medal for Best First Class Red, and and Oman Air won Gold for Best First Class Sparkling.
Relative minnow Air Tahiti Nui won Gold Medals for Best Business Class Sparkling and Best Business Class Rosé, and Oneworld took top spot for Best Alliance.
Now in its 37th year, Cellars in the Sky has been running since 1985, and celebrates the best business and first class wines served by airlines on their flights.
Following two years of route disruptions and restrictions on inflight services, the world has reopened and travel is back in full force. This also signalled the end of socially distanced tastings and the return to a normal judging process for our awards.
