  • Best Business Class Unisex Amenity Kit, awarded to its iPad case with cosmetics by Crabtree & Evelyn, becoming a modern icon of airline amenities. An excellent example of FORMIA’s drive to deliver high quality and creativity in a way which clearly demonstrates an understanding of customers’ high level expectations.
  • Most Innovative Kit, which recognizes the uniqueness of the Hajj Kits and proves once more the Airline’s attention to passengers needs and thoughtfulness in catering for the comfort and convenience of its pilgrim passengers, matched by the care with which these kits have been designed and developed.
