Results announced: The SimpliFlying Hero for January 2012 is Pooja Dua of SpiceJet!
Last week, we announced that we’re revamping the SimpliFlying Heroes initiative and hereon we’d be crowning our Heroes after a free and fair voting process open to all. Now, after an exhilarating and arduous week of voting, the masses have spoken. Pooja Dua of SpiceJet has secured the highest number of votes in a keenly contested race that saw the two other stalwarts – Christian Kamhaug of SAS and Diego Quesada Grimaldo of COPA Airlines – take it down to the wire.
These are how the final results stacked up. Painfully close between Pooja and Diego, we must admit.
What’s noteworthy is that the last week saw a record number of votes pouring in to the site in support of the various contestants and the final number stacks up to almost 3000 votes.That’s really, really huge. Thank you everyone for voting. Do watch out for next month’s nominees in the first week of February. Meanwhile, there’s good news for the two stalwarts who were pipped to the post: they’ll have one more chance in the coming months to win the crown and get a chance at a wildcard entry to this year’s Social Media Awards.
Watch out in the coming weeks for an extensive profile of Pooja complete with stories from her Social Media journey, her crowning moments at SpiceJet and what we can expect this year from the innovative, low-cost carrier from India! Congratulations once again, Pooja!
