Yardley, PA (PRWEB) February 17, 2011
Global Traveler, the only monthly magazine for business and luxury travelers, announced the addition of 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. Airlines and hotels will be invited to participate; only those invited will be considered for the honor.
The committee met in early 2011 to select the airline and hotel candidates. Selected airlines and hotels will be notified of their selection via announcement in late winter. 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 solely on reader travel experience, which is valuable information," said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. "However, we added the new awards because it is also important 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 effects the travelers' experience," Gallagher continued.
