Airport Facilities Council reveals first Excellence Award winners


The winners of the first-ever Airport Facilities Management Excellence Awards have been revealed by the Airport Facilities Council of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA).

The organisation said that winning airports will be formally recognised at the council's business meeting on 24 October at IFMA's World Workplace 2007 Conference & Expo in New Orleans. The Council also said that the award winners include the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, the San Diego International Airport, the Salt Lake City International Airport and others.

Winners were determined by a panel of IFMA Airport Facilities Council judges, who used a points system to determine award winners in categories based on the airport's number of annual passengers and award submissions were evaluated using five criteria: leadership, innovation, sustainability, customer service and operational efficiency. The competition was open to all airports regardless of their membership in IFMA or the Airport Facilities Council.
