For the fourth consecutive year, Delta has been awarded the Supplier of the Year and Most Admired Airline by the readers of The Beat as part of the 8th Annual Beat Readers’ Choice Awards.
The awards are based on a poll that asks readers to select the company in each of the six supplier segments – Airline, Hotel, Car Rental, Travel Management Company, Travel Technology Company and Payment System – that they "most admire for its policies, management style and service for business clients." Additionally, readers vote for the one company, among all six segments, as the Supplier of the Year.
“I am extremely proud that our Sales division, with the support of Delta’s 80,000 employees, has set a level of service and business excellence that is recognized across multiple industries,” said Steve Sear, Senior Vice President – Sales. “We’ll take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate this honor before we roll up our sleeves and go to work to do it again.”
The Beat, a daily business travel e-newsletter, has over 10,000 subscribers consisting of senior-level executives in travel management companies, airlines, hotels, technology companies, expense and payment companies as well as corporate travel buyers, consultants and industry analysts.
The Beat is part of the Business Travel News (BTN) Group that oversees voting on the BTN award, which is currently underway. Delta has finished first for a record four consecutive years in BTN voting.
