Four U.S. Airports Receive ACI Quality Awards for Hygiene

ACI has introduced a new award – ‘Best Hygiene Measures by Region’ – providing airports with a reliable method of gauging customer response to new health measures.

Airports Council International (ACI) World in partnership with Amadeus has celebrated the winners of this year’s Airport Service Quality (ASQ) awards which highlight the world’s best airports as judged by their customers.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on global passenger traffic in 2020, it has also affected the expectations customers have for the airport experience. In response, ACI has ensured the ASQ program has evolved with these changing times along with airports that have adapted to better serve our customers.

ACI has introduced a new award – ‘Best Hygiene Measures by Region’ – based on hygiene related questions added to the survey questionnaire. This provides airports with a reliable method of gauging customer response to new health measures and recognizes airports’ success in responding to the intense focus on hygiene.

In the North America region, U.S. airports Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International, San Antonio International and Tampa International were all given a Best Hygiene Measures by Region award, along with Canada’s Toronto Pearson and Victoria International airports.
