The 2014 World Travel Awards For Europe are taking place this weekend in Athens, Greece and Lufthansa and SWISS have been honored with a handful of awards!

First, Lufthansa took home the trophy for ‘Europe’s Leading Airline’ for the 4th consecutive year. Additionally, Lufthansa also took home the prize for ‘Europe’s Leading Airline Lounges’ for the First Class Lounges in Frankfurt Airport.

SWISS takes home the award for ‘Europe’s Leading Business Class’ for the 4th year in a row. It seems like SWISS’ formula is working wonderfully!

The World Travel Awards host a series of these Award Ceremonies around the World and break down their events on a regional basis. This year, these ‘Regional Qualifying Events’ will take place for the following areas: The Middle East, Africa & the Indian Ocean, South & Central America, North America & the Caribbean, Asia & Australasia, and Europe.

Winners from each of these ‘Qualifiers’ will move on to compete at a year-end event in Morocco that will eventually crown a ‘World Champion’ in a variety of travel related categories. Voting is reserved for professionals in the travel industry and typically attracts upwards of 500,000 ballots each year.

Looks like LH and LX have advanced to the ‘Knock-Out’ Round! 😉
