Airport of Guayaquil receives ACI award once more
Airports Council International (ACI) has once more awarded the Airport of Guayaquil with their "Airport Service Quality" Award (ASQ) as the Best Airport in their category and region (2 to 5 million passengers per year, Latinamerica and Caribbean region). This award is the result of user surveys taken by ASQ throughout the year, and with 2020 having been full of difficulties, makes this award all the more important to us for offering a level of service our users value and recognize.
"ACI’s Airport Service Quality awards represent the highest possible accolade for airport operators around the world,” ACI World Director General Luis Felipe de Oliveira said. “This year more than any other, the awards recognize those airports that have listened to their customers and adapted the services and experiences they offer to meet changing needs and expectations under very trying circumstances."
