What an accolade for the Cairns Airport and cementing Far North Queensland on the international map.
The Skytrax World Airport Awards beginning in 1999 and regarded as the benchmark for the industry.
Passenger surveys are used to assess services and facilities across 550 terminals across the globe.
Chief Operations Officer Kate McCreery-Carr says the award is great recognition for the wonderful collaboration that goes on across the community.
"This is the first time Cairns Airport has been recognised in the awards and the recognition of the airport experience we offer our passengers is a great achievement."
Earlier this year we topped the rankings for the most punctual airport in Australia and New Zealand.
Well done team!
