TAP Portugal was voted the “Best Airline in Europe” by the Global Traveler magazine, USA, the leading specialized publication in the Tourism & Travel niche. Launched ten years ago, with the aim of acknowledging and naming the top in the travel industry, the Global Traveler Awards are one of the most relevant and coveted awards and mean a great deal to TAP, as the winners result from the GT Tested Reader Survey annually conducted by the magazine, asking frequent business and luxury travellers to evaluate and vote the best in a wide range of travel-related products. In the whole, this year’s survey covered as many as 71 categories, including world-wide airlines, hotels, loyalty programs and many other travel products.
For TAP, this GT Award not only recognizes and rewards the dedication and hard work that the company has consistently developed in recent years in the very competitive and demanding North-American market, but also highlights its top quality product as well as the great potential of its main hub in Lisbon, which is a strategic platform offering excellent air connections between North America and Europe.
The Global Traveler is a leader magazine in its sector, with a very large circulation worldwide. Its readers are frequent premium travellers averaging a considerable number of international and domestic round-trip flights a year. The 2013 GT Awards now announced resulted from the direct voting of more than 22,000 people who responded the survey from January 1 to August 31, 2013. This year’s winners will be honored and awarded at a cocktail reception to be held on December 10 at the Peninsula Beverly Hills, in Los Angeles, California.
