At the esteemed World Travel Awards 2017, Aeroflot has been declared victorious in two significant categories: Europe’s Leading Airline Brand and Europe’s Leading Airline – Business Class. On Saturday, the award ceremony was organized in the Marble Hall of the Russian Museum of Ethnography in St. Petersburg.
To quote Georgio Callegari, Aeroflot’s Deputy General Director for Strategy and Alliances, “we are proud that Aeroflot has been named as a leader of the European travel and tourism industry in two key categories. This is the result of many years of work to return Aeroflot to the global aviation elite.”
He also said, “today, Aeroflot is a premium airline with a global reach and offering customer service of the highest international standards. Aeroflot Group ranks among the 20 largest airline groups by passenger traffic, and has a route network which provides access to many destinations in Russia of unique historic cultural heritage and outstanding natural beauty.”
The award ceremony was the second prestigious honor for Aeroflot in a time span of a week. At the APEX EXPO Awards in Long Beach, California, Russia’s flagship carrier was designated as Five Star Global Airline in APEX’s Official Airline Ratings last week. All the prominent names in the sectors of travel, tourism, hotel and civil aviation industries are being awarded the World Travel Awards. Ever since the year 1993, the winners have been announced yearly following a broad selection process where thousands of professionals and millions of travelers partake in.
