Airports Council International announces winners of the 2016 Airport Service Quality Awards

Montreal, 6 March 2017 –   Airports Council International (ACI) World today announces the winners of the 2016 Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards. Airports large and small from around the globe demonstrate airports’ commitment to providing an excellent customer experience.

“I am delighted that as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of helping airports understand how best to serve their customers with the ASQ Programme, we see our largest group of winners ever,” said Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World. “These airports have dedicated themselves to delivering a stellar customer experience. Promoting a culture of continuous service improvement has become a matter of gaining competitive advantage and optimising non-aeronautical revenue performance. ACI proudly recognizes these accomplishments and we look forward to seeking more effective, efficient and profitable ways of serving the flying public together.”

ASQ is the only worldwide programme to survey passengers at the airport on their day of travel. Every year, the Programme delivers some 600,000 individual surveys in 41 languages in 84 countries. It measures passengers’ views of 34 key performance indicators, including airport access, check-in, security screening, restrooms, stores and restaurants. Each airport uses the exact same survey, creating an industry database that allows airports to compare themselves to other airports around the world. The ASQ Programme also has a feature that facilitates sharing of best practices among airport operators.

The ASQ Awards are presented to those airports whose customers have rated them the highest over the course of the year. The categories have been designated to recognize the achievements of airports of different sizes and in different regions.

The ASQ Awards Ceremony will be held at the 27th ACI Africa/World Annual General Assembly, Conference & Exhibition in Port Louis, Mauritius, 16–18 October 2017.
