Jorge Chavez International Airport is recognized as the best airport in South America, according to the World Airport Awards ranking, organized by Skytrax. It should be noted that the first air terminal in Peru reached this first place in the Best Airports in South America category, surpassing the airports of Quito, Bogotá, Guayaquil, among others. It has also ranked 44th out of the top 50 airports in the world.
"At Lima Airport Partners (LAP) we received this recognition for the ninth time, with great humility, this achievement is the result of all the effort of those who make up the Jorge Chavez airport community. In the midst of this adverse scenario due to the pandemic, this award encourages us to rethink all the following actions to generate the best experience for our passengers with all the necessary protection measures, once we start operating" said Rocío Espinoza, LAP Corporate Communication Manager.
For Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted, Jorge Chavez International Airport remains a popular option among passengers in South America. It should be noted that, among airports of similar size, Jorge Chavez ranked ninth overall in the category of airports that received 20 to 30 million passengers.
It should be noted that the World Airport Awards are the most prestigious awards in the global airport industry, considered as a quality benchmark that rates customer service and facilities at more than 550 airports. The awards are based on the results of the World Airports Survey, carried out between September 2019 and February 2020, where clients from airports of more than 100 nationalities participated.
Finally, as in every annual edition of the survey, it evaluates the user experience in the airport service and the key performance indicators of the product, from check-in, arrivals, transfers, purchases, security and immigration to departure at the airport's boarding gate.
