Cancun, Mexico (February 22, 2011) – The Airports Council International (ACI) has named the Cancun International Airport as Latin America’s best airport for the second year in a row. Thanks to its quality of its services the airport has been placed among the top five spots worldwide among airports that serve between 5 and 15 million passengers per year.

This is a product of ASUR’s successful job of constantly elevating the quality standards in both service and customer care that it provides for its passengers.

“The Cancun CVB is extremely proud of ASUR’s ongoing quality, service and excellence in maintaining our destination’s airport as one of the top airports to be internationally recognized. When visitors enter our destination, the service, hospitality and professionalism they receive is as equally as important as their experience within the destination, and we are glad our visitors have that top-notch experience from the moment they step foot in Cancun” said Jesus Almaguer, Director of the Cancun CVB.

The award ceremony will take place on the 7th of April during the Regional Assembly of the ACI- ASIA, in new Dehli, India, lead by the General Director of the Airport Council International Angela Gittens.
