Clyde Travel Management was named Best Large Business Travel Agent at the 27th annual Scottish Passenger Agents’ Association (SPAA) awards ceremony.
This marks the fifth consecutive year that Clyde have received this award and was joined by winners such as Jet2Holidays (Short Haul Operator of the Year), Royal Caribbean (Mainstream Cruise Company of the Year) and Emirates (Worldwide Airline of the Year).
On receiving the award, Clyde Director Paul Cronje commented: “To win this award again is especially satisfying as it coincides with our 30th anniversary and reiterates that we have never wavered in our desire to provide the very highest standard of service for our customers.
“The team at Clyde deserve enormous credit for building strong relationships with suppliers – airlines, airports and car rental companies – ensuring that their services are fully integrated into our own offering, and which contributes to them continuing to vote for us in this award.”
The ceremony, held at Glasgow’s Doubletree Hilton, was attended by more than 600 guests.
SPAA president Ken McLeod said: “It’s really nice to be able to reward those in the regions and especially Scotland which has a very specific identity. We’ve got a lot of suppliers, tour operators and cruise companies who have people based here and who cover this territory. They are so much part of what the SPAA is about along with the travel agent community.
“So many new suppliers have put so much effort into the Scottish market and we want to make sure that they are recognised. There’s so much enthusiasm about it, the suppliers are excited about it, the agencies are excited about it and its great to see that community come together.”
