The 2019 PAX International Readership Awards reveals its winners

By PAX International


Earlier this evening, PAX International, the leading voice of news and analysis for the passenger services, interiors, IFEC and MRO executive, handed out more than 35 pieces of hardware to airlines and their suppliers across dozens of categories at the 2019 PAX International Readership Awards.

Not only did the attendance of this year’s ceremony, held once again at the Radisson Blu in Hamburg, eclipse the record-breaking numbers seen last year, the awards also experienced a swell of nominations in the months and weeks leading up to the event.

“With each year, our readership awards keep getting better and better,” said Aijaz Khan, publisher of PAX International and PAX Tech magazines. “In fact, this year we received an avalanche of votes – 30% more than what we saw in 2018.

"The PAX International team and I would like to thank the industry at large for their continued support, as well as our readership for coming out in droves to vote. Congrats to all of the deserving 2019 winners!”

Photos will be available to the winners and media outlets the week of April 8, 2019. Please contact rachel@pax-intl.com for further details.
