A COOKTOWN-based tourism company has been acknowledged for its unique experience and customer service.
Daintree Air was recently awarded a Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice award, placing them in the top 10 per cent of listed businesses.
Each year, Tripadvisor recognises businesses that consistently earn positive reviews, with the top 10 per cent listings receiving the Travellers’ Choice awards.
Daintree Air owner Greg Letondeur was thrilled with the recognition.
“It’s really good news that a company such as ours can go to Cooktown and then, seven years later, get an award like that. It’s pretty special,” he said.
“It’s a big deal.”
Daintree Air provides charter flights and joy flights around Cooktown and Cape York.
Being a small town that “doesn’t get a lot of exposure”, Mr Letondeur said the award was great for both the business and for Cooktown.
“Not that many people know about Cooktown and it doesn’t get a lot of free advertising from anywhere, so we’ll definitely be using this in any advertising we do,” he said.
