Global Traveler, the only monthly magazine for frequent business and leisure luxury travelers, announces Delta Air Lines as the 2018 Airline of the Year and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts as the 2018 Hotel of the Year. This marks the eighth year Global Traveler awarded Airline and Hotel of the Year nods.
“Each year, it becomes more challenging to name Airline and Hotel of the Year winners, as the travel industry overall continues to up the ante, but it’s clear Delta Air Lines and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts deserve the recognition. Both are wonderful choices,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “Each provides exemplary service, cutting-edge amenities, luxurious touches and dedicated employees. When flying Delta Air Lines or booking a room at a Rosewood property, rest assured you’re making a quality selection.”
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. Pertinent information considered included financial data, occupancy rates, load factors, on-time figures, safety records and menus, as well as independent research. Once an airline or hotel is selected, it is ineligible to participate for three years.
The winners will be feted at a gala reception Dec. 12, 2018, at The Peninsula Beverly
Hills. For more information on Delta Air Lines and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, check out the December issue of Global Traveler. For more information about Global Traveler, visit globaltravelerusa.com.
