Quito is South America's leading airport – World Travel Awards

Quito’s Mariscal Sucre International Airport has been named South America’s Leading Airport for the second successive year in the World Travel Awards.

Airport operator, Corporación Quiport, is absolutely delighted by the success as it considers the awards to be the ‘Oscars’ of the Tourism Industry.

Quiport’s president and director general, Andrew O’Brian (second left), received the award during a gala dinner at the Teatro Colón in Bogotá, Colombia, on Sunday night.

The award celebrates the work carried out by Mariscal Sucre Airport on three principal fronts: increasing connectivity, improving services and operating with the highest security standards, with very satisfactory results, which are acknowledged by our passengers and by the industry.

“What matters most is that behind each area of airport service are the persons who, on a daily basis, strive to deliver the best of themselves for the benefit of the users and passengers of the airport,” enthused O’Brian.
“Thanks to the work of all of these individuals the industry has focused its attention on what is occurring with regards to Quito Airport, whose leadership in the region was already acknowledged last year and was ratified this year, demonstrating that our commitment to the city is permanent.”

The World Travel Awards organisation rewards positive contributions to the development of the tourism sector on a local and international scale in each of the categories.

The selection of a winner is made through an open and global voting process, with a special feature whereby votes by persons involved in the tourism industry count as two votes.
