The Kem­pe­gowda In­ter­na­tional Air­port (KIA) has won this year’s SKY­TRAX Award for Best Re­gional Air­port in In­dia and Cen­tral Asia. The award was pre­sented at the World Air­port Awards held at the Pas­sen­ger Ter­mi­nal EXPO in Stock­holm, Swe­den on March 21, 2018.

This is for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year that the KIA has won the award. The Ben­galuru air­port had won the award thrice, in 2011, 2015 and 2017. “To be named the Best Re­gional Air­port in In­dia and Cen­tral Asia is an in­cred­i­ble achieve­ment for the KIA,” said Hari Marar, Managing Di­rec­tor and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Ban­ga­lore In­ter­na­tional Air­port Lim­ited (BIAL). The SKY­TRAX World Air­port Awards is ar­guably the largest pas­sen­ger sat­is­fac­tion assess­ment. It is con­sid­ered among the most pres­ti­gious sur­veys mea­sur­ing air­port ser­vice ex­cel­lence and qual­ity. The win­ners of the 2018 awards were de­clared based on 13.73 mil­lion sur­vey ques­tion­naires from over 500 air­ports world­wide. The sur­vey was con­ducted be­tween Au­gust 2017 and Fe­bru­ary 2018. A key direc­tive of the sur­vey is for cus­tomers to make their own, per­sonal choices as to which air­port they con­sider the best. ‘Re­gional Air­ports’ re­fer to air­ports op­er­at­ing short in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic flights, rather than hav­ing a vast in­ter­con­ti­nen­tal net­work.
