Following praise in the Daily Telegraph for our response to the pandemic, we are delighted to announce that Jet2holidays has been named a World Travel Leader, at the annual World Travel Leaders Awards as part of London Travel Week 2020.

The awards are given to organisations who have embraced the key themes of this year’s World Travel Market which are Recovery, Rebuild, Innovate.

As a media partner with World Travel Market, TTG Media was invited to nominate three businesses which are thriving in the UK and are responding positively to the pandemic.

We are proud to announce that Jet2holidays has been chosen as the UK winner this year.

According to the judges, this has been driven by our positive approach to refunds and cancellations – as well as responses to TTG's Weekly Travel Agent Tracker, which has consistently seen positive comments about Jet2holidays and how we are continuing to support independent travel agents.

Our award-winning Trade Team are continuing to deliver our Partnership 2 Success strategy of working with independent travel agents to support them and help them navigate the crisis, and this award is a fantastic tribute to that approach.

Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays said: “We are enormously grateful to receive this fantastic accolade, and we cannot thank our friends at TTG and WTM enough, as well as the judges and of course our independent travel agency partners. Since the onset of the pandemic, our team have been working around the clock to support agents and protect their bookings and commission, and this award recognises that hard work and dedication. We know what a difficult time this has been for independent travel agents, and our message to them is that we are with you every step of the way and will continue supporting you through the pandemic and beyond.”
