Edinburgh Airport can add yet another award to its trophy cabinet after being named 'Scottish Airport of the Year' at the Scottish Transport Awards last night in Glasgow.
This is the fourth major accolade this year for Scotland's busiest airport after being named 'Member of the Year' at the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, best in Britain, and one of the top three in Europe, for passenger satisfaction at the Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards and 'Best European Airport (5-10m passengers)' at the ACI EUROPE Best Airport Awards.
Edinburgh Airport was named the winner for its unwavering commitment to its passengers and providing them with the best experience possible.
Commenting on the win, Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: "This award tops off a truly remarkable year for Edinburgh Airport.
"Following our change in ownership and the challenges we faced at the start of 2013 we've worked hard over the last 12 months to completely rebrand Edinburgh Airport and ensure our passengers remain our top priority. To win 'Scottish Airport of the Year' is the icing on the cake.
"Our core business is about connecting Scotland to the rest of the world and we've engaged with Edinburgh to find out what they need from us. That connectivity is a key factor in the success of corporate Edinburgh and Scotland and will contribute hugely to our social and economic wellbeing.
"We want to be the best airport and business we can be. We go further and benchmark ourselves against business, not just against airports."
