Global flight search and travel deals platform Cheapflights has announced the list of nominees for the inaugural Cheapflights Awards. Celebrating industry excellence and innovation, the awards recognise Australia’s top performers in 18 categories.
Nathan Graham, Regional Sales Manager at Cheapflights ANZ, says “Australia’s tourism sector is outpacing much of the rest of the world with both international and domestic numbers continuing to surge, up more than six per cent on average year-on-year. There’s clearly a huge hunger in this industry and we’re proud to be able to recognise and support companies that are doing amazing work.”
The judging panel enlisted ten key travel and lifestyle media experts to shortlist the finalists. Amongst them were:
- The New Daily’s lifestyle editor Susannah Guthrie
- Lifestyle.com.au editor Sammy Preston
- Fairfax Traveller’s Tripologist, columnist Michael Gibecki
The full panel of judges can be found here.
Economy Traveller nominated
We’re thrilled to report that Economy Traveller has been nominated in the Favourite National Newspaper Travel Section or Travel Magazine category. Whilst it’s an honour just to be nominated, we’d be even more thrilled to be winners. So, faithful readers, please go here to vote.
As a bonus, every Aussie who votes will have the chance to win a holiday to California worth $7,000. This is a Cheapflights incentive, not ours, so you’re in for the running whether you vote for us or for someone else. Voting closes on 9 October 2017, and winners will be announced later in the month. Good luck!
