The airport has been shortlisted for the Airport of the Year prize in the TTG Travel Awards, run by the industry’s leading trade newspaper, Travel Trade Gazette.

Our unique combination of voting by travel agents and judging by industry experts makes a TTG Award the real hallmark of excellence within travel. We congratulate all those who’ve made it onto our hotly-contested shortlist.”
