In this exclusive video interview with International Airport Review’s Person of the Year winner, Editor Holly Miles speaks with Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, CEO of Delhi International Airport Ltd about his leadership strategy during the COVID-19 pandemic at the helm of India’s busiest airport.
The International Airport Review Person of the Year Award aimed to recognise and reward the outstanding contribution that airport leaders have made during the pandemic. Airport managers have had to navigate the uncertainty of the pandemic and keep their staff motivated, whilst at the same time providing a high-quality passenger experience and keeping staff and passengers safe. We received over 70 nominations for the award and the International Airport Review editorial team deliberated over every entry before announcing the final shortlist of just 10 airport executives. During the final vote on the shortlist, over 4,000 people voted, but the clear winner, with over 50 per cent of the votes, was Videh Kumar Jaipuriar, the CEO of Delhi International Airport Limited.
In this exclusive interview with Editor, Holly Miles, Jaipuriar discussed his strategy in minimising the spread of COVID-19, empowering his workforce whilst keeping them safe and in good spirits, the challenges he faced and the opportunities, as well as his predictions for the future.
Huge congratulations to Jaipuriar and the Delhi International Airport team for winning the award.
