NEW YORK, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) is pleased to launch the second annual Passenger Choice Awards survey, once again giving airline travelers the opportunity to vote on every aspect of the travel experience, from check-in, to food, to inflight entertainment, to cabin ambiance and more.

Because the awards are based solely on the votes of travelers – with the Nielsen Company, a leader in global information and measurement, tracking the voting – the Passenger Choice Awards are quickly becoming the benchmark for excellence in the travel industry. Awards are distributed for passenger experience, both overall and by region; inflight publication; inflight entertainment; connectivity; cabin ambiance and ground experience.

"These awards are meaningful to everyone in the industry because they are a true reflection of what passengers are experiencing. In addition to providing a boost for the winners, they keep us accountable to our customers," said Patrick Brannelly, APEX president.

Passenger Choice Award winners will be announced at the APEX 2011 Expo, 12-15 September at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
