The London-based media firm World Travel Awards Ltd. has been handing out the international World Travel Award since 1993. According to a statement from Zurich Airport AG, the airport won the award this year as Europe’s leading airport – for the 14th consecutive time. It beat out eight other competitors: Barcelona, Hamburg, London/Heathrow, Lisbon, Munich, Paris/Charles de Gaulle, Pristina and Schiphol.
The ratings result from an internet survey of travel experts and the general public. The criteria used to assess the airports include customer satisfaction and the general standard of products and service quality.
Zurich Airport CEO Stephan Widrig sees the prize as recognition of all the partner companies operating at Zurich Airport. “Only the excellent cooperation among all companies makes it possible to offer our guests superb quality.”
