CheapOair wins 2017 Gold Stevie for mobile app

CheapOair, a leading flight-focused, next generation concierge travel service, was awarded a Gold Stevie by the American Business Awards for its innovative app development for both the iOS and Android operating systems, the company said.

The CheapOair app gives customers access to over 450 airlines, 150,000 hotels, and hundreds of rental car companies on the go.

In the past year, the app made great leaps in functionality including personalized push notifications for upcoming trips, integration with Apple Watch and a companion Apple TV app, and the convenience of selecting seats.

Stevie Awards are conferred in seven programs: the Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards, the German Stevie Awards, The American Business Awards, The International Business Awards, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, and the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.

Stevie Awards competitions receive more than 10,000 entries each year from organizations in more than 60 nations.

The American Business Awards were created in 2002 to honor the achievements of organizations and professionals in the United States. More than 3,600 nominations from organizations in all industries were submitted for consideration in the 2017 competition.

It bridges the gap between an online and traditional travel agency with certified travel agents available 24/7 to help find deals and offers to destinations worldwide on over 450 airlines, 150,000 hotels, and 100s of car rentals.
