TAP elected favourite airline in Europe
Portuguese national airline carrier TAP has been voted “Favourite Airline in Europe”.
The distinction was given by the US online travel magazine Trazee Travel which focuses on travellers aged between 18 and 35.
The award was handed to TAP representatives at the Trazee Travel Awards which took place in San Diego, California on August 14.
There were four other finalists in the running for favourite European airline including Brussels Airlines and British Airways.
According to a company spokesman, “TAP has been increasingly targetting a younger market by meeting its needs and studying its motivations for travel. In 2016, TAP introduced a new concept in its ticket fares allowing passengers a choice between different products and service levels that better suit their travel needs”.
The nominees were selected according to an online poll from readers and staff at the magazine. It is the fourth consecutive year that Trazee, which belongs to the Global Traveler magazine group, has held the awards.
The award for Favourite International Airline went to American Airlines while Alaska Airline picked up the trophy for Favourite Airline in North America. Favourite Green Airline went to Norwegian Air while Favourite Budget Airline was snapped up by Aerolineas Argentinas.
In the favourite European airline category, TAP beat Brussels Airlines, Austrian Airlines, Turkish Airlines and British Airways.
