The UK’s Buying Business Travel Awards for achievements in business tourism were given out in Russia for the first time, according to Buying Business Travel Russia.

The ceremony took place in Moscow on Dec. 5.

Etihad Airways from the United Arab Emirates won the award for Most Successful Airline for Business Travel in Russia.

The Ibis hotels network, owned by the French AccorHotels, won the award for Best Budget Hotel Brand for Business Travellers in Russia and the CIS.

Plans to hold the Buying Business Travel Awards ceremony in Moscow became known at the end of October. It was then reported that a jury of representatives of companies that use these particular business travel services would choose the winners in 17 categories.

The UK-based magazine Buying Business Travel first started giving out the eponymous awards more than 20 years ago.
