Budapest Airport has received another prestigious recognition, with the CAPA Centre for Aviation, one of the world’s leading aviation market research and analysis organisations, handing over an “Airport of the Year” award for excellence to Liszt Ferenc Airport at its annual gala in the Finland capital, Helsinki, this month.
The accolade is in the 4-20 million passengers a year category. CAPA Centre for Aviation, established in 1990, is one of the largest and most recognised international market research, analysis and data supply companies in the aviation industry. Its daily analyses and information services are read and used by industry leaders all over the world.
One of the most prestigious awards in the aviation industry, the CAPA Aviation Award for Excellence is bestowed upon airlines and airports who are not only successful, but have also managed to adapt to the rapidly changing business environment in an exemplary manner, and have explored new directions and strategies that can be utilised by others as well.
The award is not decided on the basis of passenger surveys or other sponsorship; the winners are selected by an international panel of experts based on the research results of two independent, international organisations: CAPA, and Heidrick & Struggles.
Budapest Airport CEO Jost Lammers (pictured left) was on hand to receive the award. He said: “This accolade represents especially important feedback for us, since traffic at Budapest Airport is continuously breaking records, and, in addition to positive feedback from passengers, it is of special significance for us that CAPA, one of the world’s leading aviation market research and analysis organisations, has recognised our work.
“The Aviation Award for Excellence is one of the most important accolades that Budapest Airport has won. The expanding offers of Hungarian tourism and the favourable and supportive economic environment have also contributed to this achievement.”
