Bristol Airport was named ‘Best UK Airport’ at the prestigious Business Travel Awards 2012 last night (23 January).
The Airport took the top award in front of 1,200 travel industry guests at London’s Grosvenor House, seeing off competition from London City, Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester. An independent panel of judges, including travel managers from major organisations such as EADS, Alcatel-Lucent, Tesco, HSBC and E.ON, commented on Bristol Airport’s proactive approach to corporate customers. A dedicated sales team works with businesses and agents across the South West region to understand their travel needs and further develop the Airport’s offer for business passengers. Other initiatives include a dedicated newsletter for business travellers, the introduction of free Wi-Fi internet access in the terminal, and plans for a ‘business-friendly’ boarding gate for use by airlines serving key business routes. It was also a successful night for Air France KLM, which operates three daily flights to Paris and four daily flights to Amsterdam from Bristol Airport. The full-service carrier won the ‘Best Airline Worldwide’ category. Robert Sinclair, Chief Executive Officer, at Bristol Airport, said: “This Award is recognition for the relationships we have built with organisations across the South West, and would not have been possible without their support. We will continue to develop our product for business travellers, working with airlines to offer the routes and frequencies required by the region’s businesses.”Bristol Airport handled 5.7 million passengers in 2011, with around 15 per cent travelling on business.
