Singapore’s Changi Airport was announced as the overall winner of the Routes Asia 2017 Marketing Awards at a ceremony on 20 March in Okinawa, Japan.
The annual Routes Asia Marketing Awards recognise excellence in airport and destination marketing. Airlines vote for the marketing services that support the successful launch of new routes or the development of existing ones, making them highly regarded in the aviation industry.
Last year Changi Airport achieved a record high of 58.7 million passengers and more than 360,000 aircraft movements, representing a 6% increase in traffic.
Changi Airport was also the overall winner of the World Routes 2016 Marketing Awards which recognise marketing excellence on a global scale. Winning the Asian heat of this year’s awards means that Changi will have the chance to compete at the World Routes 2017 Marketing Awards in September.
Steven Small, brand director of Routes said: “The award submissions were of exceptional quality with Changi Airport beating some stiff competition. Changi has an enviable track record of continuing growth and a strong commitment to working in partnership with the airlines.”
