Aberdeen International Airport has been recognised as the UK's ‘Transport Hub of the Year’ at the National Transport Awards.
The airport was awarded the accolade based on customer satisfaction levels, safety levels, punctuality data and public surveys.
The airport's service for passengers with reduced mobility was highlighted as one area of excellence.
Mark Beveridge, operations director at Aberdeen International Airport and Southampton International Airport, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to win the Hub of the Year Award. Passengers are at the heart of everything we do and charity partnership with Kayleigh’s Wee Stars and We Too! is a perfect example of what our airport can do for as well as providing the connectivity that helps our region thrive in a global facing economy.”
The awards were announced at a ceremony in London attended by over 500 industry professionals.
Both Aberdeen and Glasgow Airports had been shortlisted for four awards including Best Practice in Diversity, Inclusivity and Accessibility as well as Lee McCann, communications manager, being named Highly Commended in the Frontline Employee/Community Champion category for the charity partnership with Kayleigh’s Wee Stars and We Too!
My congratulations to the entire AGS team, especially everyone at Aberdeen Airport. We are incredibly proud of the active role our airports take in advancing connectivity and improving capacity whilst understanding their responsibility to deliver an excellent passenger experience and living legacy with and for the communities we serve. To see their work recognised in this way is excellent.
