World Travel Awards 2005 – SWISS is Europe’s Leading Airline


Swiss International Air Lines has been named Europe’s Leading Airline and Europe’s Leading Business Airline at the World Travel Awards in London. This is the third time SWISS has won the award as Europe's leading airline.

A gala event marking the twelfth edition of the World Travel Awards took place at the Royal Opera House in London on November 13. SWISS was named winner of the World Travel Award in two categories: Europe’s Leading Airline and Europe’s Leading Business Airline.

The World Travel Awards were created in 1993 to acknowledge outstanding performance in the travel and tourism industry. This year's rankings were determined on the basis of Internet voting by 176,000 travel agents around the world.

Run of success continues

These two latest awards continue SWISS's successful run of late. Earlier this year SWISS was named Best Transatlantic Airline by Global Traveler Magazine of the US. SWISS also picked up several awards from German publication Business Traveller.
