Portugal’s national airline TAP has been nominated for three gongs in the upcoming World Travel Awards, otherwise known in the industry as ‘the Oscars of Tourism’.

A statement released by the flag-carrier on Monday this week confirmed: “TAP is once again nominated in the World Travel Awards, the prestigious annual awards of the tourism sector which highlight the world’s best brands in travel and tourism and are the result of votes by professionals in the industry.”
The company is nominated for a gong in three different categories: Best European Airline, Best European Airline (Executive Class), and Best Worldwide Website for an Airline.

The company said the nominations are “important recognition of the work that TAP has developed in the competitive European market, being increasingly distinguished for the quality of service offered.”
In TAP’s opinion the nomination for Best Website – a first for the company in terms of awards for technology – “underlines the innovation that TAP has managed to add to its online platforms.”
The European leg of the World Travel Awards Grand Tour 2014 takes place on 2 August 2014 in Athens, Greece, before the Grand Finale of the 21st World Travel Awards takes place later this year with the winners from the various heats (Europe, Middle East, South and Central America, Africa and Indian Ocean, Asia and Australasia and Caribbean and North America) on a date yet to be announced.
