Brussels Airport Wins Europe’s Top Industry Award

Brussels Airport was announced as the overall winner of the third heat of this year’s Routes Airport Marketing Awards

The Routes Airport Marketing Awards were split into 3 sub-regional categories; Northern Europe, Mediterranean & Southern Europe and Central & Eastern Europe, with a new category being introduced this year for airports of under 4million passengers. Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen was crowned winner of the Mediterranean and Southern Europe category, Prague Airport triumphed in the Central & Eastern category and Bremen topped the under 4m pax category.

The Routes Airport Marketing Awards have become synonymous with recognising and rewarding the highest standards of marketing activities undertaken by airports. The awards work on the core principle that the people who are best placed to judge an airport’s marketing activities are the airlines. Airlines from the European region have spent the last few months voting for the airports they felt deserved to win and their votes were based on an airport’s marketing activities over the past year.

The overall winner, Brussels Airport, demonstrated a clear route development strategy and implementation process in their awards submission and illustrated clearly how they have worked with their airline customers. Winning this regional heat now enables them to be automatically shortlisted for the World Routes Awards due to be held in Abu Dhabi later this year.
