The Beijing-based private jet operator Deer Jet has won the “World´s Leading Private Jet Charter 2015” award at the World Travel Awards (WTA) ceremony held in Morocco, the company said.
“This is the first time a Chinese business jet operator won the world-class award,” said Meishan Poon, service director at Deer Jet, when receiving the award on behalf of the company.
Deer Jet started its business jet operation in China 20 years ago. Now, it operates more than 80 business jets, landed at nearly 740 airports in 170 countries, and its fixed-base operator (FBO) networks covering the entire Asia Pacific region.
WTA is a globally recognized symbol for industry excellence, and has been frequently referred to by The Wall Street Journal and many other media outlets as the Academy Awards of the tourism industry.
