Aeroflot maintains its status as one of the most recognizable brand in global aviation for the third year in a row, remaining the first and only holder of this title from the World Travel Awards in history. Meanwhile, Aeroflot also took the award for World’s Leading Airline – Business Class for the second year in a row.
The Grand Final of the World Travel Awards 2019 took place on 28 November at the Royal Opera House Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman. The 26th ceremony of the World Travel Awards by tradition brought together leading representatives of the global travel industry, hotel business and civil aviation.
The award was established in 1993 in the UK and has since acquired the unofficial status as the Oscars of the travel industry. Throughout the year the awards are given at three levels: country, regional and global. Winners are decided by an online vote that attracts hundreds of thousands of travel professionals and millions of travellers. The key criteria are product quality and quality of service.
“This recognition in two prestigious categories of the main global tourism award World Travel Awards is a clear indicator that our company is developing in the right direction,” said Aeroflot CEO Vitaly Saveliev.
“Our company’s delivery of the highest level of product, the best punctuality rates in the world, a convenient route network and a focus on the development of digital technologies have all been positively appraised by the international travel community.“
