Published: 27 July 2010
Cardiff Airport has been nominated for one of the travel industry’s most prestigious awards.
The airport has been shortlisted for the Airport of the Year prize in the TTG Travel Awards, run by the industry's leading trade newspaper, Travel Trade Gazette.
Cassie Houghton, Cardiff Airport's marketing and PR manager said: "The TTG Travel Awards are regarded as a universal benchmark of quality within the travel industry. We're tremendously proud to have been shortlisted alongside such other strong entrants."
Daniel Pearce, editor of TTG, added: "Faced with ash cloud, airline strikes and global recession, the UK's best travel companies have really proven their worth, and we've been overwhelmed by the strength of this year's entries. Our unique combination of voting by travel agents and judging by industry experts makes a TTG Award the real hallmark of excellence within travel. We congratulate all those who've made it onto our hotly-contested shortlist."
Judges for the awards include experts from leading travel companies and trade bodies such as Thomas Cook, Sandals and the Institute of Travel and Tourism, as well as leading figures from the worlds of commerce and retail.
This year's winners will be announced at a spectacular ceremony at London's Grosvenor House Hotel on September 23.
