Vietjet on October 1 was honored with the title of “Best Asian Low Cost Carrier” at the TTG Travel Awards 2105, which compiles votes from travelers, travel agencies and tour operators in Asia.
The award highlights Vietjet’s achievements in providing the best services, the best network and schedules and for being the most agent-friendly airline in terms of reservations and confirmations as well as having the most professional sales and marketing team in respect of coming up with innovative ideas, exciting incentive programs and groundbreaking services.
By winning this accolade, the airline has become the first airline from Vietnam to win this award. It is also one of 16 new winners, emerging across various categories, to take home their first ever signature Hermes trophy from the TTG Travel Awards, which have been dominated by long-term winners in previous years.
The annual TTG Travel Awards has been organized by TTG Asia since 1989. The award winners are decided through the votes of readers of TTG Travel Trade Publishing’s print and online titles TTG Asia such as TTG China, TTG India, TTGmice, TTGassociations, TTG-BTmice China, and TTG Asia Luxury from May to July every year. These publications’ readers are mainly travel agents, tour operators, hoteliers and travelers. In 2015, the awards honored more than 80 winners in four categories, “Travel Supplier Awards”, “Travel Agency Awards”, “Outstanding Achievement Awards” and Honorary “Travel Hall of Fame”, covering services, products, organizations and individuals across the global travel industry.

This means we will also be in a position to contribute positively to the development of the tourism industry and trade both regionally and globally in the coming years.”
