The honours for the top airline in North America went to American Airlines. John F. Kennedy International Airport was selected as the top airport for the region, and Hyatt Hotels was named the top hotel brand.

The London-based World Travel Awards (WTA) recognizes 145 category winners in North America, Canada, Mexico and some Central American countries.

Each year, seven regional award ceremonies are held by the WTA. This year, the ceremony for North America and Central America was held in Orlando, Florida, last Saturday.

The organizers of the WTA explained that all awards are determined by the number of votes received in each category. The votes are "received from agents and travel professionals throughout the world." The officials stress that the program’s competitiveness "encourages greater quality, value and, above all, exceptional customer experience spanning every sector and region worldwide."

Awards in individual states are also given. In the state of Texas, for example, the Dallas Fairmont received the leading hotel award, while the best business hotel category was won by the Dallas Hyatt Regency.
