HIA Named Best Airport in West Asia
Hamad International Airport was recognized as the Best Airport in West Asia for the third time in a row. This came at the Future Travel Experience (FTE) Asia Awards 2017 in Singapore, with the awards celebrating airports and airlines that have displayed customer experience and innovative leadership.
HIA was recognized for its continued commitment to delivering the highest standard of service to passengers. HIA Chief Operating Officer Eng. Badr Mohammed Al Meer said they were “honored to receive the Best Airport in West Asia Award for the 3rd consecutive time, which recognizes our state-of-the-art facilities and 5-star services.” HIA, he added “will continue to work towards delivering sophisticated and innovative solutions that offer an unparalleled travel experience."
Winners were selected by a panel of industry executives from around the world, with HIA taking the lead among other airports in the region, HIA said Tuesday in a press release.
FTE Founder Daniel Coleman said the awards recognize organizations for their "end-to-end customer experience achievements," noting that since 2014, "HIA has been setting the standard for the modern day airport experience and we are pleased to witness what it has been able to achieve in a short period of time."
Combining cutting-edge technology, world-class sculptural art curated in partnership with Qatar Museums and an extensive hospitality and retail offering, HIA has successfully established itself as a leading international hub.
