This recognition serves as a testament to the airport's dedication to providing a superior travel experience to its passengers.

Here is all you need to know about Delhi Airport’s achievement!

What are the ASQ Awards?

The ASQ Awards, organised by the Airports Council International (ACI) gives a unique recognition of the best airports globally based on the discerning judgments of passengers themselves.

The ASQ Surveys meticulously evaluate over 30 performance indicators, providing a comprehensive and detailed assessment of the passenger journey experience. This robust methodology ensures the award is a reflection of genuine passenger satisfaction and provides crucial insights for continuous improvement.

ASQ Awards Highlights:

  • In 2023, more than half of the world's travellers went through an ASQ airport, showing how credible and influential the program is in setting standards for excellent airport services.
  • Out of 595,000 surveys collected in 2023, 90 airports worldwide clinched 170 ASQ Awards, emphasising the global recognition of outstanding airport services.

How do the ASQ Awards Work?

At the heart of the ASQ initiative lies a distinctive global benchmarking program, gauging passenger satisfaction while they are physically at the airport. This means that the evaluation captures real-time experiences, making the ASQ Awards stand out.

With surveys conducted at over 400 airports worldwide, the program allows for an in-depth analysis of the quality of customer service experience at each participating airport.
