Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (BLR Airport) has bagged the Best Regional Airport in India and South Asia title in the 2022 Skytrax World Airport Awards.

From check-in to arrivals, transfers, shopping, security, immigration, to departures at the gates, the survey evaluates the consumer experience across airport service and key performance factors.
The Awards ceremony was held at Passenger Terminal EXPO in Paris, France, on Thursday, June 16, 2022. The event is one of the most prestigious quality awards for the airport sector, with CEOs, Presidents, and senior management from airports across the world in attendance.

Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax said: “We congratulate Bangalore International Airport for their success in winning this important customer award as the Best Regional Airport in India / South Asia in 2022. The last two years have been extremely difficult for airports worldwide having to cope with the many restrictions of COVID-19 and the severe drop in travel demand. With air travel quickly returning to a more normal level, the challenge to deliver the highest standards is being well met here at Bangalore International Airport.”
