For the third year running, Mariscal Sucre International Airport has been recognised by the World Travel Awards as South America’s Leading Airport.

At a gala ceremony at Swissôtel Lima in Perú, Andrew O’Brian, president, Corporación Quipor, accepted the trophy.

The award rewards the work carried out by Mariscal Sucre Airport on three principal fronts: increasing connectivity, improving services and operating with the highest security standards, with very satisfactory results which are acknowledged by our passengers and by the industry.

“For a third time we have achieved recognition as leaders in South America and this achievement is not the fruit of chance but the result of well-planned work characterised by innovation in the management of the airport, commitment to the development of the city and excellent service to our passengers”, stated O’Brian.

“This award belongs to the city and the country, but also to all those who in one way or another provide services at Quito Airport.”

He added that this new honour, far from being an end, obliges Quiport to renew its commitment to maintain and exceed the highest standards of operation and service of the airport industry.

“Today we are very happy with what we have achieved, however, tomorrow we will be working on seeking new opportunities to continue improving, not to win an award, but because the city and our passengers deserve it,” he added .

The World Travel Awards rewards positive contributions to the development of the tourism sector on a local and international scale in each of the categories.

A winner is chosen by means of a voting process open to the public on a global scale, and votes cast by verified travel professionals carry a weighting of two.
