The Airports Council International (ACI) has chosen Helsinki Airport as the best European airport of 2023 in its size category (15 to 25 million passengers), said Finavia, the company operates country´s airports in a press release on Thursday.

According to ACI, the Best Airport Awards are an opportunity to recognise excellence, top achievements and thought leadership across an entire range of airport activities and for airports of all sizes and profiles.

As the industry continues to shape its vibrant, post-pandemic future, this year’s awards have emphasised key topics such as sustainability, innovation, operational efficiency and resilience.

The awards are divided into five groups based on 2019 passenger traffic. The other winners are: Madeira Airport and Menorca Airport as joint winners (under 5 million passengers), Milano Linate Airport (5–10 million passengers), Athens International Airport (25–40 million passengers) and Rome Fiumicino Airport (over 40 million passengers).

“Winning this category was Helsinki Airport whose strong sustainability story and industry-leading commitment to achieving net zero by 2025 made it the clear front-runner. The airport has improved its resilience and operational efficiency by successfully consolidating two terminals into a single terminal facility, a challenging undertaking,” said ACI in a press release.

The winners and highly commended airports were selected by an expert panel of judges comprising representatives from Aviation Advocacy, ECAC, the European Commission, Flight Global, International Airport Review, the International Transport Forum and SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking.

Earlier this spring, passengers chose Helsinki Airport as Europe’s best airport in its size category. This international ASQ (Airport Service Quality) award is based on passenger interviews as well as assessments of passenger satisfaction and airport service quality in 2022. Helsinki Airport has received the award several times during the past 25 years.

“I am grateful for the award and proud that the success of Helsinki Airport and Finnish expertise are recognised internationally. I thank Finavia employees as well as all the companies operating at the airport and their employees for the work we are doing together for smooth travel and the future of the airport,” said Finavia’s Chief Executive Officer Kimmo Mäki.
