Bahrain International Airport (BIA) was named as the World’s Best New Airport at the Skytrax 2022 World Airport Awards held at the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Paris, France.
The latest honour for BIA comes on the back of a series of accolades from Skytrax. The airport earlier received a 5-star Skytrax rating, becoming only the third airport in the Middle East to win this accolade, and another 5-star rating for its COVID-19 safety precautions. The Pearl Lounge also received a 5-star rating for its hospitality and meet and greet services.
The 2022 World Airport Awards are based on World Airport Survey questionnaires completed by airport customers during the 8-month survey period from 2021 to 2022. The survey evaluated the customer experience across airport services and product key performance indicators – from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security/immigration through to departure at the gate.
