Belfast International Airport and Aer Lingus have scooped a gong each at the Holiday Extras customers’ awards 2010.

Belfast International Airport was named gold winner in the best UK airport category and Aer Lingus has been voted the best airline.

More than 24,000 customers cast their votes in the website’s second annual customers’ awards.

Travellers rated their air travel experience across 12 categories, voting for 112 airlines, 28 UK airports and hundreds of airport hotels, lounges and car parks.

Deborah Harris, PR executive for Belfast International Airport, said: “We are really delighted to receive this award and would like to extend our thanks to all the Holiday Extras customers who took the time to vote. This award is in recognition of all the staff who work at the airport and give 110% every day to provide exceptional customer services to all our passengers.”

Declan Kearney of Aer Lingus said: “This is a great achievement for everyone at Aer Lingus and something we are all very proud of.”
