The company was honoured in recognition of its outstanding work with the third and academic sectors, as well as its phenomenal growth at Kenya Airways’ annual awards ceremony at Simpson’s-in-the-Strand, London.
Bruce Watson, Sales Manager, Kenya Airways , said: “Diversity Travel works closely with us, highlighting the specific needs of passengers travelling for humanitarian work, which contributes to a high quality experience for clients flying to any of Kenya Airways’ 58 destinations worldwide.”
Diversity Travel provides travel, visa and consultancy services to some of the world’s largest non-profit organisations and academic institutions including Save the Children International, the Salvation Army, ActionAid, GOAL and the Royal College of Pathologists.
Matthew Truin, Operations Director at Diversity Travel was presented with the award. He said: “We are delighted to be recognised as the leading charity agent. Our success is down to our highly skilled team who make sure they fully understand each client’s requirements so they can provide tailored, cost-effective travel solutions. We have the same thorough customer-focused approach whether we are researching the best flight options for a traveller or re-engineering an organisation’s global travel management processes.”
During the last year Diversity Travel opened an office in Melbourne and adjusted its UK working patterns to provide a full 24/7 service for clients across many time zones.
The ‘Charity Agent of the Year’ award will sit alongside Diversity Travel’s previous accolades including ‘Business Travel Agency of the Year’ in the Trade Travel Gazette Travel Awards 2014 and the Best Travel Management Company 2014 in the Business Travel Awards 2014.
Kenya Airways’ plans for 2015 include further modernisation of its fleet, which is already the youngest in Africa, through the acquisition of three more of its flagship Boeing 787 Dreamliner. This will further improve passenger comfort and fuel efficiency.
