The Airports Authority of Trinidad and Tobago says the Piarco International Airport has been declared the ‘Best Airport in the Caribbean’.
The declaration was made by the Skytrax World Airport Awards for 2022.
Introduced 20 years ago, the Skytrax World Airport Star Rating has become a global benchmark of quality evaluation for the airport industry.
The Piarco International airport was also named the third best in the global region – the Central America and the Caribbean – only being beaten by Panama’s Tocumen International Airport and Costa Rica’s San Jose International Airport.
“These accomplishments are as a result of the perseverance and resilience of our employees, who continue to work diligently, despite prevailing challenges, to ensure that we consistently achieve high standards of safety and security while demonstrating operational efficiency and service excellence,” said Hayden Newton, the airport’s General manager.
The authority said it intended to continue leading the region by “maintaining the highest standards of operational efficiency and customer service at both the Piarco and ANR Robinson International Airports, and making valuable contributions that would enhance the attractiveness of destination TT.”
This is the second consecutive year that Piarco Airport has claimed this honour.
