The AIRMALL® at Pittsburgh International (PIT) has won first place among domestic airports in the food, shops and amenities category of Conde Nast Traveler’s 12 annual Business Travel Awards.
“When we pioneered the AIRMALL® at Pittsburgh International Airport back in 1992, we knew we were setting a new industry standard for quality and value in airport concessions,” says Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for BAA Pittsburgh, AIRMALL’s developer. “We put the traveler first with a strategic combination of branded stores and merchandise, all available at ‘Regular Mall Prices…Guaranteed.’
“The recognition from Condé© Nast Traveler’s Business Travel Awards is clear evidence that our customers – the traveling public – recognize the value proposition of our business model,” he says.
The 2009 Business Travel Awards are based on rankings given by the magazine’s readers who are business travelers. They were asked to rank hotel chains, airports and airlines in several categories.
“The AIRMALL® at PIT has consistently achieved high marks in the Condé© Nast Traveler’s Business Travel Awards over the past several years,” added Kruisselbrink. “It is an important benchmark, and it is testament to the quality of our development.”
