Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 4 February 2015

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport has been named as the winner of the first heat of the 2015 Routes Marketing Awards.

Over 650 aviation professionals were gathered to witness the presentation of the awards in Denver and to take part in the 8th Routes Americas.

Speaking just after receiving the award, Austin Bergstrom International Airports Assistant Director, Jamy Kazanoff, said, We are absolutely delighted about the win, but a little shocked to pick this up given we were up against other airports with such high business credentials. It means a lot to us to be recognised by our airline partners for what we have achieved and I would like to thank them all for showing support in our journey to turn Austin-Bergstrom International Airport into one of the nation's most successful airports.

The annual Routes Marketing Awards are widely regarded as one of the most prestigious awards in the industry as they are voted for and judged by the airline network planning community. They provide the airline community with the chance to have their say as to which airport or tourism authority they think provides the best overall marketing services to them whether this relates to their particular relationship, effective results, provision of data and information or innovative techniques to establish new or maintain and develop existing routes.

As overall winner of this regional heat of the Routes Marketing Awards Austin-Bergstrom will be automatically shortlisted for the World Routes Marketing Awards which will take place at the event in Durban, 19-22 September 2015.

Austin-Bergstrom was also named as the winner from the 4-20 million passengers category with Orlando International Airport honoured from the over 20 million passengers category.

From the under 4 million passengers category Regina Airport Authority was ranked top and the Destination Award went to Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority for the second consecutive year.

We are delighted to announce Austin-Bergstrom International Airport as the winner of this regional heat of our marketing awards and would like to congratulate them and all of our winners, commented Katie Bland, Director Routes, UBM EMEA. In the past 12 months Austin-Bergstrom has achieved record growth and has surpassed the 10.7 million figure for 2014 with capacity up by 7.0%. With 4 new carriers and 8 new destinations, the airport now offers 44 destinations served by 13 carriers.
