Powdair Wins World Snow Award For Best Start-Up At The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show

New airline, powdair, won the award for the ‘Best Start-Up’ business at The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Show on Thursday October 26, 2017.

The award recognises the airline, which is flying routes directly in the heart of the Swiss Valais region, in a positive step to helping skiers and snowboarders increase visitors to some of the world’s best known ski resorts and making it easier and faster for them to get there.

Also announced at the show is a new partnership with Snow-Camp, the charity dedicated to empowering inner-city young people with snowsports skills and qualifications.

Joined by powdair’s resort partners, the airline’s presence at the show included a dedicated stand along with sponsorship of the powdair Lodge area, where much of the activity across the four day event took place.

Head of Commercial for powdair, Zoë Ombler, said:

The show was absolutely fantastic for us, announcing our partnership and winning the award for best start-up business topped it all off. All of our resort partners have given us fantastic support over the past few days and the exclusive offers now available for skiers and snowboarders to stay in the Valais and beyond once they have flown with powdair are incredible. We’re now really looking forward to our first flight on December 11, not long now!
