This is Africa’s best airport

Airports Council International (ACI) has announced the winners of the 2015 Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards, including the best airports in Africa.

ASQ, a benchmarking programme for airports, delivered over 550,000 in-depth passenger surveys at over 300 airports across more than 80 countries worldwide in 2015.

The 2015 results represent the world’s best in class airports where improving the customer experience is concerned—appraised by passengers.

“Airports have evolved into complex, customer-focused businesses in their own right that in many cases are in competition with each other for passenger traffic.”

“From duty free and restaurants to ambiance, cleanliness, courtesy of staff, amenities, efficiency and more, air travelers are expecting big things from the airports through which they travel,” said ACI World DG, Angela Gittens.
