Next Steps

  • Voting (at bottom of this announcement) is open from now till Oct 6. Voting will make up 50% of the final score. Note that votes will not be counted in their absolute numbers but as percentages of the online fan-base to level the playing field (with the exception of the Emerging category, where absolute votes will be counted).
  • Finalists are also required to submit a presentation pitch, between now and Sep 29. The judges will be scoring the presentation pitch and conducting a 30-minute interview with each finalist (if required) between Sep 30 and Oct 4. This will make up 50% of the final score. Please send your pitches to awards@simpliflying.com.
  • Please note that in cases where there is a huge discrepancy between votes and judges’ scores, the judges have the power to overturn the mandate of the votes.
  • The final Top 3 from each category will be announced about one month before the awards ceremony.

    I recently left my iPad on a flight where I was connecting through Miami. For 4 days with multiple phone calls & emails and getting the run around from the airline like nothing I had ever experienced, no one could locate it, even though it had been turned in to the airline’s lost and found immediately. As a last ditch effort, I sent a tweet to the Miami Airport: https://twitter.com/iflymia. In 20 minutes time, they had my iPad in hand and were sending it back to me. I was both grateful for their quick response and impressed for their wonderful customer service! I am thrilled that they have been nominated for an award and I couldn’t be happier for them! Much deserved recognition!

    Be careful,don’t purchase travel insurance with Thai air asia,irresponsible because I still not get damaged baggage claims from last 6 months
    When bought,bought and paid to air asia but to claims,must claim direct with insurance company,no any help from staff.
    Is This 5 years No.1 Low Cost Airline’s service?

    While MIA has endured extensive remodeling and expansion, it is still a magnificent well managed facility. All employees queried respond with a “Can Do” attitude. Really a welcome destination in a sea of competition. Can’t wait for the whole center of MIA to be remodeled. MIA also is the proud host to a newly remodeled Military Hospitality Lounge, providing free access to all military personnel. This is located in a pre security area at Concourse E, Second Level. Thank you MIA for all you do for travelling military personnel and their families. They are appreciative and grateful for this privilege.

    Just to bring some wind on my sails. There should also be an award for the fastest growing or best startups in the travel industry. Let’s take http://www.drungli.com (for the European market) for instance.
