At a festive evening function on June 26, 2012 at Frankfurt’s Westhafen Pier 1 the Business Traveller Awards were presented in response to the Business Traveller readership’s vote. Each year the magazine’s readers choose their favourites, with more than one thousand votes cast this time round. This year saw a reduction in the number of categories to five, each featuring first, second and third place.
Awards for the best airlines for business travellers went to Singapore Airlines in first place, Emirates in second and Qatar Airways in the third spot. Meanwhile Changi Airport Singapore, Hong Kong International Airport and Dubai International Airport walked away with the gongs as best airports for business travellers. In the category best hotel corporations for business travellers Hilton, Sheraton and Best Western captured positions 1 to 3, while Sixt, Hertz and Europcar won accolades as the best car hire firms for business travellers.
Readers chose www.lufthansa.com, www.hrs.de and www.hilton.com as the best websites for business travellers.
