Global Traveler announces Airline and Hotel of the Year nominees

Global Traveler AwardYardley, Pennsylvania – Global Traveler, the only monthly magazine for business and luxury travelers, announces the 2013 Airline and Hotel of the Year award nominees. Which airline and hotel will follow in the illustrious footsteps of Asiana Airlines, South African Airways, Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts, and Jumeirah International to be named the third Airline and Hotel of the Year?

Global Traveler staff vote on the nominees. Each well-traveled staffer submits a list of 10 airline and 10 hotel nominees. From there, each airline and hotel brand receiving 2 or more staff votes is included in the final list of nominees. Nominees will be invited to fill out an online application with pertinent information, including financial data, occupancy rates, load factors, on-time figures, safety records, and menus. A selected panel of Global Traveler employees and Advisory Board members choose the winners based on information completed by the individual airlines and hotels, outside research, and experience. Only those invited are considered for the honor.

Once an airline or hotel wins the award, it is ineligible for consideration for three years. In 2014, Asiana Airlines and Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts can once again be nominated; in 2015, South African Airways and Jumeirah International are again eligible.
