The Airports Council International (ACI) World announced the 2023 Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards winners on Monday.
The ASQ awards are recognized as the world’s leading airport customer experience measurement and benchmarking programme because they are based on live research via surveys collected at the airport from travellers who rate their satisfaction on the day of travel.
The survey included over 30 performance indicators covering key aspects of the airport experience for passengers, such as ease of finding your way, check-in, and shopping and dining options.
According to ACI World, more than half of the world’s travellers passed through an ASQ airport last year. The survey results provide the most comprehensive picture of the passenger journey at each airport and serve as global benchmarks for the industry.
Best Airports Worldwide for Customer Experience
The awards categories include Best Airports by Size (passengers per year) and Region, Airport with the Most Dedicated Staff, Easiest Airport Journey, Most Enjoyable Airport, Cleanest Airport, and Best Airport at Arrivals Globally.
The ASQ Awards help airports identify areas of strength and weakness in their operations, as well as where improvements can be made to provide a better travel experience for passengers.
In total, 75 airports around the world received 144 awards, as determined by over 465,000 passenger surveys collected in 2022.
