Auckland, Brussels, Edmonton and Nairobi airports have been announced as winners of the 2010 World Routes Airport Marketing Awards in the respective four regional categories: Asia, Europe, Americas, and Africa.
The World Routes Airport Marketing Awards are internationally accredited and widely accepted as one of the most sought after accolades in the industry. The prestige of this award is largely due to the fact that they are the only award based purely on rewarding excellence in route development and nominated only by airlines.
David Stroud, senior vice-president of Routes Events and member of the awards judging panel, commented, “What really sets these awards apart is how accurately they reflect the airlines’ views. Vitally, the airlines’ votes create the shortlist from which the panel selects the winners, and the judging panel itself is made up of airline route development professionals. This aspect in particular is unique within the industry, and what makes the awards so highly regarded.”
Runners-up recognised as being ‘Highly Commended’ were: Athens and Munich in Europe, Dallas/Fort Worth and Aruba in the Americas, Abu Dhabi Airports and Singapore in Asia, and Cairo in Africa.
