New award to honor the business aviation elite


The newly created Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Awards will recognize outstanding performances by companies and individuals in 12 different categories, ensuring that most aspects of the business aviation community will find recognition.

Launched by Media Tribune on February 18, the awards will be held on April 8, 2016, at the Boscolo Luxury Hotel in Prague, Czech Republic. The nomination procedure for the Sapphire Pegasus award is open to anyone wishing to nominate themselves or a company or individual for recognition. A panel of impartial judges decides on the winners in each category.

“I myself have been part of business aviation developments over a significant period of time and was able to monitor how outstanding performances evolved and excellent results were achieved,” said Antonia Lukacinova, creator of the Sapphire Pegasus Business Aviation Awards and CEO of Media Tribune marketing and PR Agency.

“I felt that the creation of an original award was appropriate. I now urge people to take immediate action by submitting their nominations, and use the opportunity to ensure that the most excellent performing companies and individuals become potential award winners.”
