Italian airports score high in the recent ACI EUROPE Best Airport Awards.


The Annual ACI EUROPE Best Airport Award winners were announced during a Gala Dinner at the ACI EUROPE / World Annual General Assembly last week.

The awards recognize excellence, top achievements and thought leadership across an entire range of airport activities and for airports of all sizes and profiles.

The awards are divided into five groups based on 2019 passenger traffic. Italy saw several winners including the EXCELLENCE IN HUMAN RESOURCES award for Bologna Airport. The jury liked the airport’s Sustainability Plan that has a people-centric pillar, emphasizing HR initiatives with a multi-faceted approach incorporating training, mobility care, diversity, equality, well-being and other key issues.

In the 5-10 MILLION PASSENGERS CATEGORY the winner was Milano Linate Airport. The judges commended its passenger-centric approach with a dedication to providing seamless and secure passenger travel by investing in innovative solutions such as Explosive Detection Systems for Cabin Baggage (EDS-CB) equipment and Face Boarding services.

Third winner was Rome Fiumicino airport in the OVER 40 MILLION PASSENGERS CATEGORY. The airport has innovation and sustainability at the heart of its ambitious strategy to achieve net zero by 2030.
