Yardley, PA, June 2, 2011 – Global Traveler, the only monthly magazine for business and luxury travelers, added the Airline of the Year and Hotel of the Year awards to its annual list of the best in business travel.
A committee of selected employees and Advisory Board members will select the Airline/Hotel of the Year. Thirty-two airlines and 17 hotels have been invited to participate; the companies must submit their application forms no later than Aug. 31, 2011.
The 2011 Year Committee will make the final decisions in September. The winners will be announced in the December issue, in conjunction with the GT Tested Reader Survey awards.
“The GT Tested Reader Survey awards are specific and based on readers’ travel experience, which is valuable information,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “We added the new awards to take into account influences beyond travel experience, such as financials, on-time arrivals, occupancy rates and amenities. We take into account the back end of the business with these awards, as well as customer experience. How companies behave internally affects the travelers’ experience.”

IMAGINE SETTING SAIL IN AN EXOTIC, far-flung destination, just you and your family or group of friends aboard a private yacht. The sun warms the deck, a soft breeze dances off the water, and an über-attentive crew caters to your every whim while the personal chef whips up the finest of the local cuisine with all of your culinary preferences top of mind. All the while, the captain navigates the yacht into secluded coves; to pristine, seemingly undiscovered beaches; or even to the hottest spots along the coast for a night out on the town.
