Italy’s Mission magazine has named Delta “Best Airline for Business Travelers – Routes to Americas” at the magazine’s annual Italian Mission Awards event held in Milan. The award is Delta’s fourth IMA accolade, having scooped the same title in 2018, as well as wins for “Best Long-Haul Airline for Business Travelers” in 2014 and 2016.
The judging panel – comprising leading Italian travel journalists and travel managers – cited Delta’s network and investments in innovative products and services as the reasons behind their decision. This year’s IMA awards had been due to take place in March but were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Italy is an important market for Delta and with another prestigious IMA win behind us, we look forward to welcoming back more business customers as we gradually return to the market,” said Frederick Schenk, Delta’s Regional Sales Manager-Southern Europe. “The pandemic has reduced our network, but our commitment to customers is stronger than ever. Ensuring a safer, more sanitized service through the Delta CareStandard will set us apart in Italy by offering customers greater peace of mind and more flexibility when they start to fly with us again.”
Delta restarted its operations to Italy last month and is currently operating nonstop service between New York-JFK and Rome and Milan.
