Recognition across the globe

DXB and DWC were lauded with a string of prestigious awards, both regionally and internationally

Dubai Airports received a number of international awards during 2015 in recognition of the range and quality of service and products, and the general airport experience on offer at Dubai International.

Celebrating only its 5th year in operation as a cargo airport, Dubai World Central not only managed to win an award for best airport (Cargo – under 1 million tonnes category) but also made it to the list of the world’s top 20 busiest hubs for international freight volumes.

During the year, Dubai International won the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards Middle East for Favourite Airport for Layovers as well as being named Best Airport in the Middle East at the Business Traveller Middle East Awards.

For a record 18th time, DXB was also named the Middle East’s Leading Airport at the 22nd World Travel Awards which were held in Dubai in May last year. Dubai International made a debut at two new awards – Most Supportive Approach to Travel Retail at the DFNI Awards and, more notably, Initiative of the Year Awards (with Le Clos) at the Frontier Awards.

Other prestigious wins during the year included Routes Marketing Awards Middle East and Africa in the 50 million passenger category and subsequently the Overall Winner for MEA. DXB also won Best Airport (ME) at the Asian Freight, Logistics & Supply Chain Awards (AFLAS). Last but not least, Dubai Airports was recognised for Best Employee Learning at the Service Olympian Awards.
