In February another prestigious award was added to Auckland Airport’s trophy cabinet: at a ceremony in Singapore, Auckland Airport was named the Frost and Sullivan Asia Pacific Aerospace and Defence Awards Airport of the Year (under 15 million passengers annually).

Judges use categories such as industry leadership, numerical success, and excellence in growth planning to determine the winner and they stated that Auckland Airport “has displayed excellence in all areas of the airport organisational and operational processes, including the identification of market challenges, drivers and restraints, as well as strategy development and methods of addressing these market dynamics.”

CEO Simon Moutter says, “Each award reflects the hard work we are doing with our airport partners, including airlines, border agencies and baggage handlers, to improve the traveller experience.”
