Maldives Travel Wins Achievement Award from Emirates

The Emirates Sales Operations branch in the Maldives has just been recognised for their incredible 2008-09 performance by being awarded an Outstanding Achievement Award. The award was presented at a recent regional conference held by the award-winning Dubai-based airline.

To present the award was Divisional Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations Worlwide; Richard Vaughn, accompanied by Emirates Area Manager for Sri Lanka & Maldives; Chandana de Silva. Emirates Vice President of Commercial Operations in West Asia & Indian Ocean was also present at the ceremony which also highlighted the increasingly prosperous position Maldives holidays were enjoying as a travel destination for worldwide tourists and holidaymakers.

But this time around it was outbound sales departing from the Maldives which had seen an unprecedented boost as Mr. de Silva noted: “This award is particularly noteworthy because it recognises performance during a universally challenging period for the air travel industry. The Indian Subcontinent region is very competitive, and exceeding targets is no ordinary feat. I congratulate our team in Male for an inspiring performance.”

To receive the award Emirate’s District Manager of Maldives, Darrel Sortsz who proudly remarked: “The Maldives remains a relatively buoyant market, and the station’s performance illustrates the potential of the destination,”

Emirates has already been the proud winner of more than 400 major international awards and it likes to reward their abroad teams and recognise their efforts for increasing inbound and outbound flights to Dubai holidays, Maldives holidays and Sri lanka holidays, which are popular holiday destinations they serve via their Asia-Pacific routes.
