Skytrax have announced that the 2022 World Airport Awards event will be held at Passenger Terminal EXPO in Paris on the 6th April 2022. Regarded as the Oscars of the airport industry, a large guest attendance is expected at the 2022 awards in Paris.
After the 2021 World Airport Awards were limited to online announcements due to COVID-19 restrictions, Skytrax have confirmed that the 2022 Awards event will go ahead as part of the Passenger Terminal EXPO to be held in Paris.
Edward Plaisted of Skytrax said: “We are very hopeful that by April 2022 there will a greater return to some normality, and that airports from across the world will be able to attend. We have received an overwhelming vote of support and confidence in staging the 2022 event at Passenger Terminal EXPO, and we look forward to welcoming back many familiar faces from the world airport industry, as well of course as all the new award winners that will be attending. The last two years have been the most exacting and troubling times for airports worldwide, and we look forward to providing a platform where all of their hard work and diligence dealing with the issues caused by COVID-19 can be rewarded and celebrated.”
The COVID-19 Airport Excellence Awards introduced in 2021 will be a key section of the 2022 World Airport Awards to recognise those airports that are providing the highest health, hygiene and safety protocols during the global pandemic.
The online Airport Customer Satisfaction Survey has been in progress for many weeks, and whilst not at 2019 voting levels, the survey is attracting substantially more eligible survey responses compared to the previous 18 months.
The World Airport Awards
The World Airport Awards began in 1999 and are regarded as the Oscars of the airport industry. Known as the Passengers Choice Awards, the awards are based on customer evaluations of airport service and facility quality standards across over 500 airports.
A quality benchmark for the world airport industry.
