HNA Tourism Group, the strategic tourism business conglomerate of HNA Group, has been crowned as the World’s Leading Integrated Tourism Group at the World Travel Awards Grand Final hosted in El Jadida, Morocco.
In doing so, HNA Tourism becomes the first ever Chinese company to receive the award and is the only company to hold the award at all three levels, China, Asia and the world.
Award Winners announced at the Grand Final were selected by a judging committee made up of tourism industry insiders from more than 180 countries and regions around the world.
In addition to HNA Tourism, more than 100 other leading tourism companies were nominated and attended the event.
Annually, a number of outstanding companies within the travel sector are recognised and awarded after strict review and examination by the judging committee.
HNA Tourism, a company “born and bred” in China is in the midst of a period of rapid global expansion as it establishes itself as a leading global brand.
When presenting the award to HNA Tourism, WTA president Graham Cooke said: “Only last month, in November, I presented two awards, China’s Leading Travel Management Company and Asia’s Leading Integrated Tourism Group, to HNA Tourism.
“I had been wondering to myself whether the name HNA Tourism would come up again today.
“Winning these three major awards in 2015 signifies that HNA Tourism’s strength and development potential have been noticed by the industry’s global community.
“We look forward to HNA Tourism continuing to make outstanding achievements and delivering more excellent travel experiences.”
