Westward bound this summer? Fly with the best in the West according to readers of TravelAge West, a leading source of travel industry news and product information for almost 50 years.
Earlier this month, Delta was honored with the 2016 WAVE Award in the categories of Best Business/First Class, Domestic and Best Airline, Domestic as part of the TravelAge West WAVE (Western Agents’ Votes of Excellence) Awards. The awards gave travel agents in the Western U.S. the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel supplier partners.
“We’re thrilled that our customers recognize the commitment we’ve made in the West,” said Ranjan Goswami, Delta Vice President – Sales, West. “This spring we announced our expanded Delta Shuttle service between Seattle and Los Angeles and San Francisco and this summer we added Denver to Delta’s LA network, complementing Denver-Seattle, which we started last year. We’ve also invested in renovations at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport and San Francisco International Airport. And we have plans to open a second Delta Sky Club in Sea-Tac later this year.”
A combination of enhanced airport experiences, expanded network and premium on-board services is what really sets Delta apart according to Goswami. “ Whether it’s offering a chance for a good night’s sleep in our Delta One flat-bed seating or helping travelers unwind with free in-flight entertainment , we are singularly focused on providing the best experience in the industry for our customers.”
Travel agents throughout the 15 Western states and readers of TravelAge West were invited to vote on the best-of-the-best from a list of Editor’s Pick award recipients.
“The WAVE Awards are a great gauge of how travel companies are perceived by agents,” TravelAge West Editor-in-Chief Ken Shapiro said. “Our readers are always enthusiastic about supporting the companies that are great to work with and that consistently deliver for travelers.”
TravelAge West will also feature Delta in a special WAVE Awards Spotlight Issue due out on July 18. This year’s award marks the fourth time in five years that Delta has been voted the Best Airline, Domestic by TravelAge West readers.
