Published: 18 Dec 2020
Airport Parking and Hotels (APH), the award-winning airport parking operator and retailer, has once again been confirmed the winner of the ‘Best Airport Parking Provider’ category at the British Travel Awards, held on 14th December. APH has now won this award for an impressive eleven consecutive years.
The prestigious British Travel Awards, renowned as the ‘Oscars’ of the travel industry awards, is the largest independent awards scheme in the UK and the only purely consumer-voted awards programme for the travel industry, ensuring the winning brands are those considered the best in the business by their customers.
This year the British Travel Awards took place as a virtual awards presentation ceremony for the first time in its 12-year history, with BBC’s The One Show presenter Alex Jones virtually presenting Nick Caunter, Managing Director of APH, the award from Boisdale Restaurant in Canary Wharf.
Nick Caunter, Managing Director of Airport Parking and Hotels said: “This year has been extremely challenging for everyone. However, it’s been particularly tough for the travel industry, which has unfortunately been one of the industries most affected by the pandemic. To win the British Travel Award for Best Airport Parking Provider during such a difficult time is truly an honour and is testament to the hard work and high level of service the APH team continues to provide to our customers. We would like to pass on our gratitude and appreciation to all our loyal customers who voted for us.”
Lorraine Burton, CEO of the British Travel Awards said, “APH is clearly a travel ancillary product that people use time and again as it’s a product useful and relevant regardless of what type of holiday people are taking, whether that’s a weekend away, a ski holiday, or even a safari. The APH parking product is something they will regularly use – and the sheer number of votes APH receive each year just shows how satisfied their customers are. The BTAs give consumers a voice, and APH customers clearly want to vote for their favourite airport parking provider. This year, the BTAs as a whole received fewer votes than in usual years however we still managed to gather over 240,000 votes from consumers, which is still the largest number of consumer voters for any travel industry award – and specifically for APH they received well over 10,000 individual verified votes.”
Established in 1980, Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) offers parking at all major UK airports as well as overnight stays at airport hotels and access to airport lounges. APH also works with trusted partners to offer customers other extras such as car hire and travel insurance.
