The results are in, so it’s now time to unveil the winners of the Business Traveller Awards 2015 – Aviation.

Voted for by you, the reader, they recognise the achievements of those airlines that have gone the extra mile in making your travelling lives as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

The awards are completely independent and widely seen as the leading accolades in the business travel industry. There is no pre-selection by the Business Traveller team and all the data provided by votes is analysed by an independent market research company to produce the list of winners.

This year’s awards were presented at a glittering ceremony at the Royal Garden Hotel in London on October 12, 2015. The event was well-attended, with writer, broadcaster, actor, and former Conservative Member of Parliament Gyles Brandreth on hand to present the prizes.
