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.”
