George Best Belfast City Airport has been nominated for one of the most prestigious global marketing awards in aviation for a second successive year.

The airport has been shortlisted for the ‘Under 4 Million Passenger’ category of the World Routes Marketing Awards.

Voted for by airlines, the awards highlight airports which have excelled in route development marketing with the winners announced at the World Routes Conference in Barcelona this September.

The accolade follows the Routes Europe conference which was co-hosted by the airport in Belfast earlier this year.

“The World Routes Marketing Awards are some of the most prestigious in the industry and to have our work recognised by airlines as world-class is testament to the work we do marketing Belfast City Airport, and indeed Belfast and Northern Ireland as a destination, to potential new airlines,” said commercial and marketing managerKaty Best.

“Attracting new routes and airlines does not happen overnight. The process can take several years and in that time we ensure frequent communication with potential targets and are continuously delivering innovative activity that keeps us on their radar.”
