The Frequent Business Traveler GlobeRunner Awards recognize the world’s best airlines, hotels chains, automobile manufacturers, car rental agencies, luggage manufacturers and travel websites. Airlines are voted in three categories: Best Airline in the Americas; Best Airline in Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) and Best Airline in Asia/Pacific.
Voting was conducted online from January until March this year and over 110,000 votes were cast by readers.
Transaero Airlines is the first Russian airline to receive a GlobeRunner Award.
“Transaero Airlines has been singled out by the road warrior readers of Frequent Business Traveler as the Best Airline in EMEA. Our readers’ very selective preferences make their votes particularly meaningful,” said Jonathan Spira, editorial director of Frequent Business Traveler.
Olga Pleshakova, Transaero Airlines CEO, said: “We are proud to receive the recognition of a leading publication for frequent travelers. I would like to thank all readers who voted for Transaero. We really appreciate that these votes were awarded by seasoned frequent travelers that really appreciate high quality services. A new international award granted to Transaero Airlines proves that we are on the right track.”
