Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) received the prestigious award of “Best Airport for the Middle East region” from the Airports Council International (ACI) in an award ceremony in Seoul, South Korea during the council’s annual general assembly.

The award came as a result of the Capital’s airport score in the 2013 Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Survey results – a key benchmark for customer service in the global airports’ industry.

Abu Dhabi International Airport was also recertified for 2014 with the prestigious ASQ Assured Certification from Airport Council International (ACI). The certification is in recognition of the airport’s service quality management systems and the commitment of senior management to maintaining the highest service standards.

This certification for quality management provides Abu Dhabi International Airport with an opportunity to learn from peer comparison and benchmarking with ASQ best practice. It is a testament to the airport’s commitment in implementing service quality management and meeting passengers’ expectations. The ASQ Assured Rating for 2013 was 87%.

Commenting on receiving the award, H.E.
