Kilimanjaro Airport Retains Routes Africa Marketing Crown

Kilimanjaro International Airport takes top spot in ‘Routes Africa airport marketing award’ for second year running. Kilimanjaro joins Tampa International Airport, Abu Dhabi International Airport and City Airport Bremen who were announced as overall winners of the Americas, Asia and Europe heats respectively, earlier in the year.

Speaking just after receiving the award Mattijs Smith, Managing Director of Kilimanjaro Airport said: “We are very delighted and proud to win the overall Routes Africa award for the second year in a row. This award is a true recognition by our airline customers for strengthening our existing routes and achieving a record growth of 24% in traffic in 2013.”

The annual Routes awards are highly regarded as the most prestigious awards in the industry as they are voted for and judged by the airline network planning community. They provide the airline community with the chance to have their say as to which airport or tourism authority they think provides the best overall marketing services to them whether this relates to their particular relationship, effective results, provision of data and information or innovative techniques to establish new or maintain and develop existing routes.
