Air Berlin wins Best Short-Haul Airline prize at Business Travel Awards


Leading lower-cost airline Air Berlin has been named as ‘Best Short-Haul Airline’ at the inaugural Business Travel Awards.



The awards – created this year in a merger of the prestigious Buying Business Travel Diamond Awards and the Business Travel World Awards – are voted for by business travel buyers, suppliers and arrangers. The awards honour excellence in the corporate travel industry and recognise Air Berlin’s commitment to the sector.


This year’s awards ceremony took place at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel on January 17. Air Berlin triumphed over rivals British Airways and bmi.


Titus Johnson, Air Berlin country manager UK and Ireland, commented:


“This is a great way to start 2010. Air Berlin has carved out an enviable reputation amongst corporate clients. With pressure on travel budgets we are the ideal partner, offering an unbeatable combination of lower fares while maintaining the on-board frills such as food and drink.


“What’s more, we have a real partnership approach with our business partners, so TMCs can get access to corporate deals by booking a relatively low level of flights each year.”


Air Berlin won the same prize [Best Short Haul Airline] in 2007 at the event’s predecessor, the Business Travel World Awards.
