Kishore said 'We are honored that RGIA continues to be ranked among the top three airports in its category for the 6th consecutive year by ACI.
Last year we were one of the few Airports who were awarded the ACI Director General's Roll of Excellence for consistently being in the top 3 rankings in the world in its category for 5 consecutive years.
Winning this again for the 6th year, reflects our commitment for delivering a high quality passenger experience on a consistent basis.
ACI's ASQ award is a major achievement for an airport and its community and the entire credit for this recognition goes to our stakeholders, partners, concessionaires and employees who have consistently delivered a memorable and delightful experience to our customers, that has enabled us to become one of the best in the world.'

Despite competition from much newer airports in the region, the airport continues to maintain its reputation for setting standards in airport service quality.
