By Nahrain John @karryontravel09 Jun 2017The Flight Centre Travel Group has solidified its place as ‘Australasia’s Leading Travel Agency’ after winning the title AGAIN at this year’s World Travel Awards Australasia edition. Flight Centre beat rivals such as Helloworld, House of Travel and STA Travel, to take home the award for the seventh consecutive year. Congratulations Flighties. Although the group may be recognised as the best across the region, when it comes to the ‘Leading Agency Group in Singapore’, Flight Centre lost the title for a second year to its biggest Singaporean competitor, Dynasty Travel. Ah well, there’s always next year. Meanwhile, if Flight Centre is the region’s leading travel agency, then which airline is the aviation equivalent? Hint: this carrier likes to fly an Aussie goose to Los Angeles and Buenos Aires. Yes, it’s Air New Zealand. The airline beat Qantas, Virgin Australia, Jetstar, Fiji Airways and Air Tahiti Nui, and was also named this year’s ‘Leading Airline Brand’. When it comes to cruising, the larger and technologically advanced Royal Caribbean International style was recognised as being among the best, while InterContinental Hotels & Resorts kept overnight travellers happy as the region’s ‘Leading Hotel Brand’.
