AIRMALL AT PITTSBURGH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WINS TOP RANKING IN ANNUAL CONDE NAST TRAVELER SURVEY
PITTSBURGH, PA (October 08, 2009) - The AIRMALL® at Pittsburgh International Airport took first place among U.S. airports in the food, shops and amenities category in Conde Nast Traveler's 12th Annual Business Travel Awards. The magazine published the results in its October 2009 edition.
The Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Business Travel Awards is based on rankings provided by the magazine's readers who were identified as business travelers. Those readers were asked to rate hotel chains, airports and airlines in a variety of categories as excellent, very good, good, fair or poor. Final scores represent the percentage of readers who rated an entry in a specific category as either excellent or very good.
"It is an honor to be recognized among the finest examples of airport dining and retailing in the nation," Allegheny County Airport Authority Chairman Glenn R. Mahone said. "Our quality airport amenities and our excellent customer service grow more and more important and will remain a priority for the Airport Authority."
"When the AIRMALL opened 13 years ago it was considered a leader and innovator," said Bradley D. Penrod, Executive Director/CEO, Allegheny County Airport Authority. “The variety, the selection and the guaranteed street pricing policy helps to keep Pittsburgh International Airport on top. The Airport Authority in partnership with BAA-Pittsburgh, the AIRMALL management company, looks to maintain this level of excellence for years to come."
"The AIRMALL® at PIT has consistently achieved high marks in the Conde Nast Traveler's Business Travel Awards over the past several years," said Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for BAA Pittsburgh. "It is an important benchmark, and it is testament to the quality of our development."
