Aviation Awards For Good Service

Aug 2, 2008
The aviation industry is constantly evolving to meet new challenges and higher expectations from passengers, and the years ahead will be no different.

In recent years mergers and agreements between the major airlines has helped many former State owned airlines from going under, and new airlines offering a no frill service but cheap fares has opened up the world for millions in Australia, Europe and The Americas.

But have successful cheap fare airlines captured a high percentage of the flights market at the expense of service - and can small airlines have any chance of competing with the big guys?

Apparently they can - at least according to 70,000 Brits who have flown in the last year and voted in the highly influential Which? magazine they can.

One airline, Palmair, who fly out of Bournemouth Airport in the South East of England, have just one 34 year old plane, but came third in the poll, with only Singapore Airlines and Jet Airways beating the small operator, proving perhaps that service can sometimes beat size in the flights industry.

They carry just 70,000 passengers a year, and for example each day put fresh flowers onboard, including in the w.c.'s.

The airline started by flying to Majorca, but now have over a dozen destinations in Europe where they fly their passengers.

Majorca started to develop as a tourist hot spot in the 1920s.Today, Majorca sees more than six million visitors each year, yet ninety-five percent of vacationers concentrate in only five percent of its territory. Less developed areas of this elegant island are ripe for new development and prime property commands a great premium. It seems more people than ever before want to live on or invest in the gorgeous island of Majorca. Majorca is known as the Mediterranean Lady and it offers a little something for everyone.

Another popular holiday destination for the airline, both in the summer and for the winter, is Tenerife.

Tenerife is known for its beautiful climate, which attracts nearly three and a half millions tourists a year to its scenic 2,034 square kilometers. Most of Tenerife's tourism comes from the United Kingdom, followed by Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Italy and France, among many others.

The island is home to some good holiday resorts, including Playas de las Americas and Los Cristianos.

Recently legislation was passed to ensure that any future resort construction must either be of five-star status or offer resort luxuries like golf courses or banquet facilities.

Los Cristianos, previously a small fishing village, is now one of the largest resorts on the island. Located in the southern part of the island, it is home to mass-market tourism. The architectural feel of the resort town is very typical Canarian. The town centre is never crowded with vehicles, as the entire area is pedestrian-only. Both small and large boats share the large port. A wide array of boats can often be seen docking or parked in the bay. The resort has two large beaches and lots of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops to choose from.

And with an airline providing good services to the island for UK tourists, a holiday in Tenerife can be somewhere that British tourists will return to for second and third holidays!
