Top awards for NZ tourism industry

DURING my little summer break, I have travelled a fair bit myself, visited places I have not seen for years and other places I have never been to before.

A couple of friends and I went for a short trip to the Marlborough Sounds and stayed in an absolutely fantastic hostel.

We were convinced that we had found paradise on earth, but according to an article by the NZ HERALD, we were quite close, but not close enough.

WINNER: Air NZ is Airline of the Year (pic: own)

The best bed & breakfast in the south pacific region is on New Zealand’s South

Island, not in Marlborough, but in Queenstown.

Readers of the Tripadvisor website have voted for Crown View Bed & Breakfast between Queenstown and Arrowtown as best bed & breakfast in the annual Traveler’s Choice awards.

Seven other New Zealand B&Bs from all over the country made it into the top ten.

If you are keen to travel, but are not quite sure where to go, you may get some inspiration straight from your bookshelf.

But there were more good news for New Zealand’s tourism industry, lately.

Air New Zealand has been awarded “Airline of the Year” for 2010 by airline magazine Air Transport World.

The magazine commended the airline for

  • innovative use of technology
  • customer service
  • committment to environmental research and protection
  • sound financial performance during the last year
  • conducting the world’s first sustainable biofuel flight

And for those of you who can’t get enough of flying… or flying objects… well, actually unidentified flying objects – STUFF has good news: you can look forward to later this year when the military will release secret files on New Zealand UFO sightings.
