Business Travel Award

Delta’s year is off to a strong start in the U.K.! The airline beat off competition from a number of global carriers to take the title of ‘Best Long-Haul Airline’ at the Business Travel Awards held in London on January 21st, 2019.

One of the U.K.’s highest-regarded industry accolades, the Business Travel Awards are judged by a panel of travel experts alongside Buying Business Travel magazine’s editorial team. The judges called out Delta’s innovation in biometric and facial recognition, saying its on-time performance, profitability and global outlook stood out when making their decision. Other airlines shortlisted for the award included American Airlines, ANA, Etihad, Japan Airlines and Lufthansa.


The Business Travel Award is the latest in a series won by Delta in the U.K. over the past six months, which include: TTG’s ‘Airline of the Year’; Selling Travel’s ‘Best Airline to North America’; ULTRA Awards ‘Best American Airline’ and Business Traveller’s ‘Best North American Airline’.
