The results are in, so it’s now time to unveil the winners of the Business Traveller Awards 2015.
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 the Royal Garden Hotel in London on October 12. The event was well-attended, with writer, broadcaster, actor, and former Conservative Member of Parliament Gyles Brandreth on hand to present the prizes.
Qatar Airways won both Best Airline, Best Business Class and Best Middle Eastern Airline, while Singapore Airlines took home the trophies for Best Long-Haul Airline, Best Economy Class, Best Asian Airline and Best Cabin Staff.
British Airways took home two awards, for Best Short-Haul Carrier and Best Frequent Flyer Programme, while Oneworld was named Best Airline Alliance.
Unsurprisingly, Singapore Changi Airport was yet again voted Best Airport in the World — for a 28th successive year.
In the hotel categories, Best Airport Hotel again went to Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong, while Hilton Hotels & Resorts collected the Best Business Hotel Chain Worldwide and the Best Business Hotel Chain in the UK awards.
Elsewhere, Avis was voted the Best Car Rental Company Worldwide, in Europe and also in North America.
