Leading travel magazine prepares to name the 2018 Airline and Hotel of the Year

Global Traveler, the only AAM-audited magazine for luxury business and leisure travelers, announces the 2018 Airline and Hotel of the Year award nominees. Global Traveler launched the accolade in 2010, and this year prepares to name the eighth Airline and Hotel of the Year.

Global Traveler staff and the Globility Board, a vetted and trusted group of subscribers, vote on the nominees. A selected panel of Global Traveler employees and Advisory Board members choose the winners based on outside research, current standards and personal and FX Express brand experience with the nominated company. Only those nominated are considered for the honor.

Once an airline or hotel wins the award, it is ineligible for consideration for three years.
Last year’s winners, American Airlines and Lotte Hotels, were unable to be considered this year.

Congratulations to the following airline nominees:

Alaska Airlines
