“When we pioneered the AIRMALL® at Pittsburgh International Airport back in 1992, we knew we were setting a new industry standard for quality and value in airport concessions. We put the traveler first with a strategic combination of branded stores and merchandise, all available at ‘Regular Mall Prices…Guaranteed,” said Jay Kruisselbrink, vice president of development for BAA Pittsburgh. “The recognition from Conde Nast Traveler’s Business Travel Awards is clear evidence that our customers — the traveling public — recognize the value proposition of our business model.”

The Conde Nast Traveler 2009 Business Travel Awards is based on rankings provided by the magazine’s readers who were identified as business travelers. Those readers were asked to rate hotel chains, airports and airlines in a variety of categories as excellent, very good, good, fair or poor. Final scores represent the percentage of readers who rated an entry in a specific category as either excellent or very good.

“The AIRMALL® at PIT has consistently achieved high marks in the Conde Nast Traveler’s Business Travel Awards over the past several years,” added Kruisselbrink. “It is an important benchmark, and it is testament to the quality of our development.”
