Edinburgh Airport has been voted the best in Europe in its size category for the second year in a row.
The airport was named Best European Airport: 5m - 10m Passengers at the eighth annual ACI Europe Best Airport Awards in Madrid.
Judges commended its focus on its customer base, both in terms of passengers and airlines, and the way it responds to feedback from customers.
Scotland’s busiest airport, Edinburgh was up against competition from Cologne, Nice and Milan in its size category.
Jim O’Sullivan, Edinburgh Airport’s chief executive, said: “This is an outstanding achievement. To win the prestigious award for the second consecutive year is impressive enough, but to do so whilst having the challenge of being sold is truly amazing.
“The team at Edinburgh Airport is dedicated, focused and deserving of this accolade. We will keep working hard to deliver what our passengers want – great service and a diverse range of routes. That’s what’s at the core of this and last year’s success.”
Edinburgh Airport was sold for £807m at the beginning of June after former operators BAA were ordered to sell either Edinburgh or Glasgow by the Competition Commission.
New owners Global Infrastructure Partners also control Gatwick and London City airports.
The ACI Europe Best Airport Awards cover four categories, aiming to recognise customer service, retail, security and environmental awareness at the airports involved. This year’s judging panel was drawn from a group of independent experts.
