TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Sunwing has received the Consumer Choice Award in Vancouver in the category of Best Charter Airline and Vacation Provider for the first time; just months after the prestigious accolade was conferred upon the leading travel company for a third consecutive year in Toronto. The award is only bestowed upon a very select group of business owners and entrepreneurs recognized by customers for their business excellence.
Established in 1987, the Consumer Choice Award is the only organization in Canada to conduct independent market research surveys to determine brand reputation and customer satisfaction. Companies are ranked based on over 1,250 customer surveys carried out by some of the largest, independent Canadian-owned research companies.
Jack McFadden, Chief Operating Officer of Consumer Choice Award commented, "Consumer Choice Award has been utilizing third party independent surveys since 1987 to assess the opinions of consumers in all major Canadian cities. Sunwing was chosen as the top Charter Airline and Vacation Provider in Vancouver and Lower Mainland BC based on the quality of their work, their reputation in the community, and the pride and passion that they demonstrate in their work. CCA congratulates Sunwing on this prestigious recognition."
The news was also welcomed by Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations at Sunwing, who commented, "We are extremely pleased to be honoured with this award for the first time in Vancouver. We are very proud of this important accolade and want to congratulate our hard-working and innovative team for being recognized for their passion in delivering an excellent customer experience."
