Istanbul Airport has been nominated in the Reader Choice: Airport of the Year category at the International Airport Review Awards 2019, just eight months after its inauguration in October 2019.
The award, which is presented annually by UK-based International Airport Review (IAR) magazine, recognizes excellent airports around the world in terms of passenger experience, highlighting industry progression, innovation and creativity. It takes into account delays, real-time information, connectivity, available amenities, interaction with staff, cleanliness and general guest satisfaction.
Readers can vote for their Airport of the Year until August 19, 2019, and the decision will be made on September 27, 2019. The winners will finally be announced on November 28, 2019, with a special in the IAR magazine.
In May 2019, Istanbul Airport received the Special Achievement Award in the category Outstanding Innovations at the Leisure Lifestyle Awards from Global Traveler.
