Call For UK Entries In The 1999 Environmental Tourism Awards

24th Jun 1999

British Airways is inviting the UK tourism industry to put its `green` credentials to the test and enter the annual British Airways Tourism for Tomorrow Awards.

The awards recognise any organisation in the tourism industry which has made a positive contribution towards its local environment or heritage. Tour operators, individual hotels and chains, national parks, heritage sites and other tourism-related organisations are all invited to enter.

Hugh Somerville, Head of Environment at British Airways, said: “While entries from overseas have increased steadily over the years, the number of UK entries has declined. We`re sure there are many worthy contenders out there who have worked hard to protect the environment and deserve recognition.”

Last year Budget Rent a Car won the top UK prize for its innovative use of cars powered by alternative fuels. Runners-up included Manchester`s Museum of Science and Industry and the Green Tourism Business Scheme in Scotland.

The global award was won by Conservation International in Ghana for its construction of a canopy walkway in Kakum National Park.


Each year, the overall British Airways Tourism for Tomorrow winner is selected from five regional winners by a judging panel chaired by David Bellamy. Both UK and international winners benefit from high-profile publicity, including coverage in the national press and on ITV`s `Wish You Were Here…?`

Entry forms are available from British Airways plc, Tourism for Tomorrow Awards, Environment Branch, Waterside (HBBG). PO Box 365, Harmondsworth UB7 0GB.
