Birmingham Airport has been awarded the 2017 "Routes Europe" Marketing Award

Birmingham Airport has been awarded the 2017 "Routes Europe" Marketing Award in
the 4-20 million passenger category for its marketing activity over the last 12 months

The awards, voted by a panel of senior airline executives, are an annual event and highly
regarded in the aviation industry. They recognise the outstanding marketing services that
have supported the launch of new air routes or the development of existing services

The ceremony held last night, Monday, at "Routes Europe" in Belfast, Northern Ireland,
saw the Midlands' largest airport beat stiff competition from Warsaw Chopin, Budapest,
Cologne Bonn, Marseille Provence and Larnaca Airports in its category

Paul Kehoe, the Airport's Chief Executive, said: "I'm delighted for the team on receiving
this accolade which has recognised our airline marketing campaigns as well as business
development and sales activities over the last year. The team have explored innovative
new ways to engage with global audiences through traditional and new marketing channels
and they should feel very proud of this award, as do I"

Steven Small, brand director, Routes, added: "Congratulations to Birmingham Airport
on the winning the award. It's not surprising due to the dedication and enthusiasm of
the team, and the creativity and hard work put into the submission"

So far in 2017, Birmingham Airport has welcomed Jet2, bmi regional and has announced
British Airways and FlyOne, both due to launch this summer. Following on from the start
of nine airlines in 2015, last year the airport welcomed six new carriers - Blue Air, Qatar
Airways, Czech Airlines, Iberia Express, Cobalt and Alba Star

In 2016, Birmingham Airport saw a 14.2% increase in passengers and has celebrated
more than two years of consecutive monthly record growth. Despite this boom, the
airport managed to get more flights in and out on time than any other airport, becoming
the world's most punctual airport in 2016
