Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards 2022 results

Business Traveller Awards

Today, we have announced the winners of the region’s most prestigious travel awards. The Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Awards is now in its 31st year and continues to celebrate the best in the travel and hospitality industry as voted by some of the region’s most qualified judges: the Business Traveller Asia-Pacific readers.

Taking an average of 19 business trips a year (pre-Covid), our readers are experts in assessing what constitutes the perfect flight and an exceptional hotel. Each year, we invite more than 30,000 of our loyal subscribers to cast their votes in our Reader Poll and share their opinions on everything from their favourite hotel brand or preferred hotel in a specific city, to the best inflight experience or favoured airport and airline.

While this year we returned to requests for readers’ thoughts on the last 12 months only (last year was 24 months due to the unprecedented global situation), we still asked readers to consider non-travel experiences related to Covid and its aftermath, including levels of communication, efficiency, sensitivity, and support from companies and organisations within the travel industry.

The poll ran from July to September, with the results independently compiled by research agency, Business Intelligence.

Read on to see the winners and runners-up.
