Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) has been adjudged the ‘Best Airport in India and Central Asia’ by Skytrax at the world airport awards.

The Skytrax world airport awards are a global benchmark of airport excellence and are widely known as the passengers choice awards.

“It is a matter of great pride for us to receive yet another coveted award off global repute and I fully dedicate this to all our stakeholders and business associates at Delhi airport. It is indeed an exemplary accomplishment, which is the result of our customer centric approach,” said I Prabhakara Rao, CEO of Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL).
