Flybe lands two top ‘Airline of the Year’ awards

Flybe has won two top travel industry awards within the space of a few days.

The airline was named ‘Airline of the Year for the UK & Ireland’ in this year’s Travel Agents Choice Awards, and scooped the ‘Best UK Domestic Airline’ accolade at the Northern Ireland Travel and Tourism Awards, beating off stiff competition from BA, Aer Lingus, easyjet and Jet2.

Both awards are given following independent voting by UK travel agents and sponsored by leading travel trade publications to acknowledge star performers in the travel industry across a range of categories.

Stephen Hobday, Flybe’s Director of Sales, said: “It is a tremendous honour to have won these two awards, made all the more special because they were selected by our peers across the travel and tourism sector. These wins have capped a memorable year for Flybe that has seen us celebrate our 10th anniversary, introduce our new 175 Embraer jets and launch our new ‘Making Flying Better’ campaign, which delivers more transparent booking, a bigger choice of fares and improved services.”

Flybe has already received the ‘Best UK Domestic Airline’ award at a gala dinner in the Slieve Donard Hotel in Belfast and will be presented with the ‘Airline of the Year for the UK & Ireland’ award during World Travel Market in November.
