Asiana Airlines, Korea’s second-largest air carrier, has won the airline division award for this year’s Mecenat Awards, the company said Tuesday.

The Mecenat Award, given by the Korean Standards Association, is based on a two-month survey of 258 companies and consumers between the ages of 20 and 59 in Korea’s five largest cities. The survey includes 22 factors including business performance, human resource operations, creative management and leadership.

Asiana emerged top of the airline division, with particularly high marks in customer satisfaction and corporate social responsibility.
