Abu Dhabi International Airport also took home the award for ‘Best Staff Service in the Middle East’ for the second time, having previously scooped this award in 2011.

Ali Majed Al Mansoori, chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, expressed his delight at receiving both awards: “To receive two iconic industry awards, both as a result of direct passenger surveys, not only reflects the outstanding service which we provide to passengers; but it also shows our continued commitment to further improvements, having also won both awards last year.”

He added: “The awards are a tribute to the hard work and tenacity of our staff, partners and stakeholders who strive to deliver a high quality passenger experience at all times, and I would like to thank them personally for their efforts. The industry recognition we are receiving bodes well for the future, as our expansion plans gather pace with the Capacity Enhancement Programme and development of the Midfield Terminal Complex.”

“The fact that the airport has managed to build on its previous success by adding the Best Airport Staff in the Middle East demonstrates how much Abu Dhabi Airport has improved its customer experience in the last 3 years,” said Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax.
