Auckland Airport voted sixth favourite worldwide

Auckland Airport voted sixth favourite worldwide

Auckland Airport has been voted sixth favourite airport in the world by the UK readers of Condé Nast magazine.

The Condé Nast Traveller Reader's Travel Awards 2008 (UK) also showed New Zealand as the favourite country in the world amongst its readers.

Auckland Airport chief executive Simon Moutter said, "Auckland Airport is working hard to represent our country, be uniquely kiwi, outstanding and welcoming in all that we do.

“We compete globally and being ranked so high by discerning readers who travel far and wide is really encouraging that we’re on the right track.

“This award also acknowledges the contribution of many other organisations that play a role in running the airport - airlines, ground handlers, border agencies, shops, restaurants and cafes,” said Mr. Moutter.

Readers vote on cleanliness, design, layout and lounges, pre and post-flight facilities, shopping, food, restaurants, flight information and clarity of signs.
