Aussies’ chance to choose Travel Brand Champions
Cheapflights, the global flight search and travel deals platform is calling on all Aussies to vote for their favourite travel companies and brands as it launches its inaugural Cheapflights Awards to celebrate industry excellence and innovation.
Consisting of 18 categories – encompassing airports and airlines, experiences and travel media talent, and everything in between – the Awards have today opened to public for voting until 9 October 2017, with the winners to be announced in Sydney later that month.
Everyone who votes will have the chance to win a holiday to California worth $7,000, courtesy of awards partner Qantas Holidays. Aussies simply need to visit Cheapflights.com.au/awards to have their say and enter the competition.
Nathan Graham, Regional Sales Manager at Cheapflights ANZ, said the team is thrilled to bring the Cheapflights Awards to Australia, the company’s fastest growing market, after successful launches in both South Africa and the UK in the last 12 months.
“Australia’s tourism sector is outpacing much of the rest of the world with both international and domestic numbers continuing to surge, up more than six per cent on average year-on-year1. There’s clearly a huge hunger in this industry and we’re proud to be able to recognise and support companies that are doing amazing work.”
To shortlist finalists for the Awards, Cheapflights enlisted the aid of a judging panel of ten key travel and lifestyle media, including The New Daily’s lifestyle editor Susannah Guthrie, Lifestyle.com.au editor Sammy Preston and Fairfax Traveller’s Tripologist, columnist Michael Gibecki.
The shortlisted nominees across the 18 categories.
