SpiceJet wins Global Travel Award

Allison Sodha

SpiceJet, an Indian based airline, has won the 2009 award for the Best Company in Travel and Tourism: South Asia. This prestigious award recognizes the airline as being the greatest contributor to regional travel and tourism. The title was granted by the World Travel Market in London, a premiere event for the international tourism industry.

SpiceJet's mission "is to become India's preferred low cost airline, delivering the lowest air fares with the highest consumer value, to price sensitive consumers." We often use this airline in our packages and receive consistent positive reviews from clients. A fun feature is that each aircraft is named after a spice, such as pepper, cardamom, chili, etc. (On my personal flights last year, I flew pepper and ginger.)

Congratulations, SpiceJet!
