Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) has honoured travel partners at their annual agents awards ceremony. Felix Rodel, Area Manager for SWISS in the Middle East and Africa said, ‘The event held was successful as it is every year, and provided SWISS the platform to salute our travel partners for their merit and support last year.
They have worked hard, despite the increase in web sales, and the other factors impacting the industry, and have performed as true partners to SWISS.’
The awards were based on sales results from the calendar year 2005, and recognised the success of the agencies in selling SWISS flights to customers across the UAE. The results included peak travel times, and special holiday seasons such as the Eid Al Fitr.
Individual sales performance per agency was considered for the Agents Top Ten Awards. Majid J. Al Mulla, Vice President of DNATA World Travel received the top award, Best Travel Agent 2005, Kanoo Travel followed as first runner up and Airlink International came third. All agencies received a token of appreciation from the SWISS management team, for their sales efforts during 2005.
