All airlines should be considering the efficient and useful marketing activities of any airport on their network, by geographical region, irrespective of airport size.
The following criteria can be used as a guideline to airlines wishing to place their vote:
How to Vote
Click here and follow the links to nominate up to five airports in priority order.
The first airport is therefore the one considered to have had the greatest overall impact on a carriers own network development plans, the drop down form (which is sorted into geographical regions) will allow the airline to select airports. It is that simple!
Please note that all network planning executives and those involved in the route development process both on a local and international planning basis are entitled to vote. Voting will be open until 16th August 2010. So make sure you vote for the airports you would like to win!
A shortlist of five airports per category will be produced from the votes. All votes will remain confidential. Shortlisted airports will be contacted from Friday 20th August and requested to submit a case study, by email or file transfer to support their nominations, for consideration by the judges and the winners will be announced at the Gala Evening in Vancouver on Monday 20th September.
The overall winners from regional heats held in the Americas (Edmonton), Asia (Auckland), Europe (Hamburg) and Africa (Entebbe) will be automatically shortlisted. Therefore, please do not nominate these airports as they will automatically be on the final shortlist together with 4 other airports within their regional category. Please note: Middle East airports fall into the Asia category and CIS airports fall into Europe.
Nominations and supporting material will be evaluated by a panel of industry experts drawn from RDG board members and current and former representatives from the airline network planning community
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.
