The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) has been recognized for its outstanding work in communications, the result of a new public relations program launched in 2010 to improve communication with airlines, passengers, employees, tenants and stakeholders.

Airport Council International – North America (ACI-NA)  awarded the Comox Valley Airport’s new publication FLY YQQ with second place in the newsletter category for its 2011 Excellence in Airport Marketing and Communications Contest Thursday.

Indianapolis International Airport took home top honours in the category, with Vancouver’s YVR placing third behind YQQ.

“ACI-NA congratulates the winners of the 2011 Excellence in Airport Marketing and Communications Contest,” said ACI-NA president Greg Principato. “Each year, this very competitive contest allows airports to showcase their best marketing and communications efforts that serve their stakeholders, including the traveling public, airlines and other tenants, employees and the community. We continue to be amazed by these award-winning entries.”

This year, 44 airports and airport authorities submitted 175 entries in the contest, which encompasses categories that recognize work in marketing and public relations, and provides airports the opportunity to be honored for the quality of their work.

“We are very proud to be able to compete among large international airports like Indianapolis and YVR that have established and respected marketing and public relations programs,” said YQQ CEO Shirley de Silva.  “FLY YQQ encompasses the world-class aspect of our brand that is all about taking a professional approach to our business operations and ensuring open communication with our stakeholders and business partners.”

Awards are distributed in 17 categories ranging from brochures, advertising, marketing and public relations campaigns, newsletters, special events, video and film productions, to social media campaigns and websites. Communications and marketing professionals from the U.S. and Canada served as judges to review contest entries remotely, by way of web access.
