Auckland Airport’s route development marketing team received global industry recognition in early October when it was awarded a highly commended at the World Routes Airport Marketing Awards.
It is the fourth time Auckland Airport has received an award of this kind in three years and it was the only airport in Australasia to win this year. The award was shared with Changi Airport in Singapore.
The World Routes Airport Marketing Awards are considered the most highly regarded in the industry and have been held annually for 14 years. They recognise excellence in airport marketing as voted exclusively by the world’s airlines.
Glenn Wedlock, general manager aeronautical commercial says it’s extremely rewarding to be recognised by the global airline industry.
“We have undertaken research on each airline serving Auckland and their markets and customer segments, and chosen to participate where we can make the most difference.”
Auckland Airport had previously been awarded highly commended for airport marketing in the Asia-Pacific region at both the 2011 and 2009 awards, and won the overall global award for marketing in the Asia region at the 2010 Global World Routes Awards.
