“Winning this award demonstrates that our customers and the wider industry continue to recognise that we are helping business travellers to make savings on their travel budgets by having access to the best fares on offer, without compromising on excellent service. It remains increasingly important for us to continue to be leader in the low fares market in Europe, supplying products and solutions that our customers want and need.”
