Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has once again been named the world's "Best Airport" at the annual TTG Travel Awards - an award it has claimed every year since 2002, except in 2003 when the awards were not held.
Stanley Hui Hon-chung, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said he was delighted that HKIA has built such a solid reputation as a leading international airport. "It's a great honour to be recognised as the world's best airport again by TTG readers. Clinching the award for ten years proves that HKIA has achieved an exceptionally consistent delivery of high quality service.
"The award, given to HKIA by TTG readers, is a great testament to the tireless efforts of our 65,000-strong workforce in the airport community, who strives to offer an enjoyable airport experience to the ever-growing volume of passengers. We will continue to upgrade our facilities and services to ensure pleasant and seamless journeys for all travellers using HKIA," Mr Hui added.
The TTG Travel Awards 2012 were voted by over 60,000 readers of TTG's print and online publications between June and August of this year. These include TTG Asia, TTG China, TTG India, TTGmice, TTG-BTmice China, TTG Asia e-Daily. The Awards have been held every year since 1989, with the exception of 2003 due to the SARS epidemic.
