Foynes Flying Boat Museum win CIE Award
The CIE Tours International Awards of Excellence were first launched in 1990. The awards are presented based on feedback received from over 25,000 customers surveyed throughout the year. The data and information obtained from these surveys is invaluable to CIE Tour partners who use it to continuously improve their offering to their clients. Each of the CIE Tour partners who qualified for an award, delivered an exceptional quality experience and welcome to visitors, achieving a customer satisfaction rating of over 92%.
Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum were the only award winners from Limerick this year. Foynes played a pivotal role in establishing commercial transatlantic passenger flights in the 1930’s ad 40’s. At the museum you can learn the history of Flying Boats and the diverse range of people who arrived and departed from Foynes through the comprehensive collection of historical and interactive exhibits and memorabilia. These stories are brought to life for visitors since it opened in 1989, located in the original Foynes Airport Terminal Building.
Speaking at the presentation of CIE Tours International Annual Awards of Excellence Elizabeth Crabill said; “30 years ago CIE Tours International introduced its annual Awards of Excellence to recognise Ireland’s hospitality ambassadors – the people and businesses throughout the country who put Irish tourism on the global stage through the warmth of welcome and quality of service provided to our international visitors.
Congratulations to the team at Foynes on this award. For more information about the museum, visit www.flyingboatmuseum.com
