International Airport Review Awards 2018
Voting is now open! You have until Friday 28 September to submit your votes.
International Airport Review’s Awards are unique in being the only independent awards to recognise and reward excellence within the global airport and aviation industry. These awards, designed for airports and suppliers alike, recognise the significant impact best practice and innovative solutions can have on improving the operations of an Airport.
Please click on the dropdown buttons below to display the list of nominees in each category. You can vote for one entry per category.
Criteria: Entrants must put forward solutions that can be shown to have directly improved the performance of an airport’s airside operations. This might be through cutting costs or man hours, improving safety for ground staff or facilitating on-time performance.
Criteria: Airports which have cut the ribbon on a new build, however big or small, in the last two years can put forward their project in this category. Winning builds will be architecturally innovative and tasteful, looking to the future with environmentally friendly features.
Criteria: This category is open to applicants who have minimised their environmental impact through schemes and projects in the last two years. It might be that the entry has cut their carbon emissions, waste or noise levels.
Criteria: Airports should be able to demonstrate how changes implemented in the last two years have improved their passengers’ experience from the moment they wake up and head to the airport until they are walking down the jet bridge to board their flight. This might be through the implementation of mobile technology, improved signage, the creation of more comfortable waiting areas or anything that smooths a passenger’s ride.
Criteria: Suppliers in this category provide examples of how their products and solutions have improved passengers’ experience from the moment they wake up and head to the airport until they are walking down the jet bridge to board their flight. This might be through the implementation of mobile technology, improved signage, the creation of more comfortable waiting areas or anything that smooths a passenger’s ride.
Criteria: This category is for the non-aeronautical revenue creators. Entrants will provide products and solutions which help airports boost their turnover in this increasingly important and changeable area. This turnover can come from anywhere on the airport grounds, be that outside in the carpark or at the boarding gate. Applicants should be able to show statistics to prove as far as possible how their product or solution has increased non-aeronautical revenues at an airport.
Criteria: Entrants should display ground-breaking, innovative solutions which, whether through technology or systematic changes, have shown the potential to dramatically improve airport security.
Criteria: Suppliers can put forward solutions or products that have drastically improved the way in which an airport or airports operate. IAR is open to a range of applications in this category, from a new product to aiding foreign object detection through to a new way of measuring passenger flow or baggage handling.
Criteria: Entrants should show how they have directly improved the performance of an airport’s terminal operations. This might be through cutting down on man hours required to perform a certain task, saving money or improving safety of passengers and staff landside.
Starts: August 2018 | Ends: September 2018
When all entries are in, International Airport Review will open the process up to our members and fellow industry professionals. Last year, we received over 70,000 votes from professionals based in no less than 156 countries … which we think is pretty good going considering there are only 196 countries in the world; 5 of which don’t even have airports! (Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino and Vatican City, since you were asking).
Takes Place: October 2018
For each category, we will select a shortlist of three exceptional entrants, based upon votes received and the opinions of our team of aviation experts. All submissions shortlisted will be published online and promoted to our audience. If your submission is shortlisted, you may be contacted by a member of our editorial team should we require any additional information about your submission.
Takes Place: December 2018
All Winners will be announced online and in our final issue of the year; International Airport Review Issue #6 2018. Winners will be notified four weeks prior to the official public announcement, providing sufficient time to prepare marketing materials.
