Thursday 30, September 2010
Air France was elected “Airline of the year” in the category of the "2010 Business Travel Gold Awards” organized by IFTM Top Resa International Travel fair, Thalys International and DéplacementsPros.
Air France was awarded the prize by its business travellers for these two innovations:
Moreover, Air France is pursuing investment in its long-haul Business Class offer, investing over 110 million euros over three years to provide customers with an upgraded, more comfortable seat, a revamped in-flight meal service and new ground services. These improvements complement all Air France’s innovations for its La Première, Leisure and Corporate account customers.
"By constantly innovating and adapting its offer in line with business travellers’ expectations, Air France aims to become the world’s recognized leader in this area”, stated Christian Boireau, Executive Vice President, Commercial France, Air France-KLM.
The Business Travel Awards promote companies operating in France and developing business travel services, products or innovations. Trade associations, travel managers, etc. (ACTE, CEDAF, AFTM, Marco Polo, NBTA Europe) drew up a shortlist of companies, which were then put to the business travellers’ vote.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
