BT Awards 2013

The results are in, so it's now time to unveil the winners of the Business Traveller Awards 2014.

Voted for by you, the reader, they recognise the achievements of those airlines, airports, hotels, train operators, car hire firms and luggage brands 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 London Hilton on Park Lane on October 6. The event was well-attended, with actor Robert Powell on hand to present the prizes.

British Airways and Emirates proved popular, with the former winning Best Airline, Best Short-Haul Carrier and Best Frequent Flyer Programme, and the latter taking home Best Long-Haul Carrier, Best First Class and Best Middle Eastern Airline.

Singapore Airline won three awards, collecting trophies for Best Economy Class, Best Asian Airline and Best Cabin Staff.

Quite incredibly, Singapore Changi Airport was yet again voted Best Airport in the World — for a 27th successive year.

In the hotel categories, Best Airport Hotel went to Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong, while Four Seasons collected the Best Business Hotel Chain Worldwide award and Hilton was named the Best Business Hotel Chain in the UK.

Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit collected the Best New Business Hotel award.

Elsewhere, Hertz was voted the Best Car Rental Company in North America, while Avis was named Best Car Rental Company in Europe and also Worldwide.
