Introduced in 1988 by InsideFlyer magazine's Randy Petersen, the "Freddies" have grown in stature and importance to become the most prestigious member-generated awards in the travel loyalty industry. The goal of the Freddie Awards is to give voice to the frequent flyer and to honor the efforts of an industry that counts more than 300 million members worldwide.
The iconic "Freddie" trophy graces the lobbies of some of the most respected travel loyalty programs throughout the world. The obelisk-shaped statuette is a symbol of excellence that can only be obtained by exceeding the high expectations of frequent travelers.
In 1988, thousands of voters cast Freddie Award ballots. In 2013, 2.9 million ballots were cast. Balloting is available in the following languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Mandarin and Japanese. And voters are able to cast a ballot for their favorite travel loyalty program in one of three geographical regions: The Americas, Europe/Africa and Middle East/Asia/Oceania.
