This is the tenth edition of the prestigious annual awards that embrace the entire travel journey from booking through to end destination, including airlines; airports (including but not confined to shopping and dining); airport advertising; and other travel operations.

The winners were drawn from a high-class shortlist across 23 hotly-contested categories. 

Commenting on this year’s results, The Moodie Davitt Report Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie said: “We have been profoundly struck by the exceptional quality and innovation on show this year.

“The entries showcased not only a deep understanding of customer needs and experiences in a rapidly evolving digital world but also a remarkable commitment to enhancing those experiences through creative and effective omnichannel strategies.

“The range of submissions, from digital marketing campaigns to integrated solutions, highlighted the tremendous advances made by our industry over recent times in terms of digital transformation.

“It was particularly interesting to see how companies have embraced cutting-edge technologies to create seamless, engaging, and personalised customer journeys.

“The integration of artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and data analytics into these solutions offers another dimension to the way our industry engages with consumers. The Moodies Class of 2023 is a very impressive one indeed.” ✈
