Southall Travel, one of the leading travel agencies in the United Kingdom has won the prestigious ‘Best Consolidator 2009’ award from Kenya Airways, one of the finest air carriers in Africa. The award has come as a breakthrough since the agency is fairly new in the region.
London, UK March 20, 2010:In what is seen as another leap forward, the UK based Southall Travel has recently bagged the ‘Best Consolidator’ Award for 2009 from Kenya Airways, one of the most renowned air carriers in Africa. Mr. Bruce Watson, Sales Manager UK and Ireland, Kenya Airways presented the award to Mr. Jaymin Borkhatria, Director of Sales, Southall Travel at an agency-appreciation lunch and awards ceremony organised by the airline at the Simpson’s-in-the-Strand, London. Also present at the event were Ms. Salina Hussein, the Key Account Manager for Southall Travel at Kenya Airways, and the representatives of some of the distinguished travel agencies in the country.
The gala luncheon event was put together to award the agents for their support to Kenya Airways. “The award with the ‘highest sales turnover between January and December 2009’ as the criteria for judging the best consolidator, is the true indication that southalltravel.co.uk is a preferred choice of travellers not only for Middle-Eastern, Asian and Far-East destinations but also for the African destinations”.
On winning the award, Mr Jaymin Borkhatria commented that “it is an honour to get this award especially because we are fairly new player in Africa”. The award from Kenya Airways is definitely another feather in the company’s cap as it follows the recent accolade of similar nature conferred upon the agency by the renowned Indian carrier, the Jet Airways.
Southall Travel has gained phenomenal popularity in past few years and has emerged to become a high equity brand which Mr. Borkhatria attributed to the great sensitivity that the company has towards its customers and the sharp understanding of their travel needs. “The company remains steadfast and determined in becoming a household name in the country by maintaining its pre-eminent position in the international travel business,” expressed Mr. Borkhatria.
