Awards for BA and Changi

Changi and British Airways gained the Best Airport and Best Airline at the Business Traveller awards event last week, once again hosted by Kensington’s Royal Garden Hotel. For Singapore’s main airport this is the 25th consecutive year that it has won first prize in its category. Speculation was rife at the event whether the ending of the British Airways – Qantas relationship meant a re-appraisal of BA’s commitment to the airport.  Currently it is just one through flight per day.  It used to fly to all the Australian State Capitals.
