AUCKLAND Airport has been voted the best in Australasia at the World Travel Awards in London.

Chief executive Simon Moutter says the recognition is “extremely satisfying”.

“Each new award we receive is testament to the enormous amount of work we’re doing with our airport partners – including airlines, border agencies and baggage handlers – to provide a world-class passenger experience.”

The prize follows on the successes of Auckland Airport in the recent Skytrax Awards, at which it was named one of the 10 best airports in the world and the best in the Australia-Pacific region.

More than 1000 travel companies were nominated in 94 world categories and 14 travel technology categories in this year’s World Travel Awards held at London’s Mayfair Hotel.

The Manukau City Council is the owner of about 10 per cent of the airport company.
