oneworld wins its seventh best airline alliance award of the year28 July 2015
oneworld® today collects its seventh best airline alliance award of the year, confirming its position as the world’s most highly prized airline alliance.
It receives its latest honour in the debut Trazees, a new award scheme presented by Trazee Travel, the web publication focussed on travellers aged between 18 and 35, from the Global Traveler group.
The Trazees Favorite Airline Alliance award is being presented today at a ceremony on the sidelines of the 2015 Global Business Travel Association convention, the biggest gathering of business travel buyers this year, taking place in Orlando, Florida, USA. The Best Airline Alliance trophy will be collected by oneworld’s Director of Sales José María Alvarado.
oneworld member airlines also fly high in the Trazees, with American Airlines named Favorite International Airline, and LAN Airlines Favorite Airline to South America.
Trazee Travel’s Editor-in-Chief Kimberly Krol said: “As the inaugural winner in this category, it's clear oneworld is a trendsetter in the industry, and a favorite of the millennial traveler, the most sought-after travel demographic.”
Nominations for the first-annual Trazees were collected from the web publication's contributors, as well as via an online ballot completed by Trazee readers. Final winners were selected by a panel of Trazee and FX Express Publications, Inc. management.
