Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) has been named Best Regional Airport in North America for the third year in a row.
A survey of more than 12 million passengers covering more than 385 airports around the world was conducted by Skytrax, an independent, London-based air transport research organization, to determine the rankings. The results are based on 39 airport service and product factors, including check-in, arrivals, transfers and gate departures.
“The World Airport Awards are recognition of something we see every day – thousands of professionals who make up our CVG community stepping up to ensure our passengers have a wonderful travel experience,” James Huff, chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board, said in a statement. “We thank our employees, business partners, passengers and many supporters from the Greater Cincinnati region for again placing us among the world’s best.”
CVG received the award on April 10 at the 2013 World Airport Awards in Geneva, Switzerland.
“Receiving this recognition three straight years provides us with a proven track record of easy access, outstanding customer service, on-time performance and top-notch product and service offerings,” Candace McGraw, CVG’s CEO, said. “This would not be possible without a dedicated and committed workforce and tremendous support from our airline and business partners. The CVG community always goes the extra mile for its customers.”
CVG’s four runways currently offer 174 daily departures to 47 nonstop cities and 37 of the top 40 U.S. markets.
