performance. The findings were revealed today at the Air Cargo Excellence Awards in Doha,

award given, in their respective air carrier categories at ceremonies held at the Sheraton

Cathay Pacific, Nippon Cargo Airlines and Swiss WorldCargo were the Platinum Award
winners in their respective categories. Singapore Airlines, Japan Airlines and Virgin

International in North America, Frankfurt Airport in Europe and Singapore Changi Airport

performance, value, facilities and regulatory operations. The survey results for the
