DELHI, INDIA, 13th December 2012 Emirates, one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, celebrated a double success at the World Travel Awards last night in Delhi when emirates.com was named “World’s Leading Airline Website” and Skywards, Emirates’ frequent flyer programme, was voted “World’s Leading Airline Rewards Programme”.
The World Travel Awards have been running since 1994 and the categories are voted for by members of the global travel trade and the general public. Emirates beat a strong field of competition from across the globe to win these two categories.
“Emirates has a long tradition of success at the World Travel Awards” said Kevin Taylor, Group Senior Vice President, World Travel Awards. “Winning two categories is a reflection on the airline’s on-going commitment to the needs of its customers and recognising their loyalty. I would like to congratulate Emirates on its double success”
