Press Releases

Yardley, PA, Dec.1, 2014 – Global Traveler, the only monthly magazine for business and luxury travelers, announces United Airlines as the 2014 Airline of the Year and Marriott Hotels as the 2014 Hotel of the Year. This marks the fourth year Global Traveler awarded Airline and Hotel of the Year nods.

“Both of this year’s winners are favorites here at Global Traveler; with our team having experienced the exceptional quality of both United Airlines and Marriott Hotels many times,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “These awards are the pinnacle of success in the travel industry, and winners are evaluated on a number of factors. Both are absolutely among the most trusted names in the travel and hospitality industry. Congratulations.”

Members of the Global Traveler Advisory Board, a hand-picked committee of well-traveled business advisors, selected the Airline and Hotel of the Year winners at an event Sept. 25 in Philadelphia. The winners were chosen from a list of nominees (selected by GT staff) invited to complete an application form. Nominees submitted pertinent information, including financial data, occupancy rates, load factors, on-time figures, safety records and menus. Airlines and hotels that did not submit the required information were evaluated solely on independent research. Once an airline or hotel is selected, it is ineligible to participate for three years. This year, a total of 18 airlines and 20 hotels were asked to participate.

The winners will be feted at a gala reception Dec. 15, 2014, at The Peninsula Beverly Hills. For more information on United Airlines and Marriott Hotels, check out the December issue of Global Traveler. For more information about Global Traveler, visit newgtsite.wpengine.com.
