Innovation has always been a driving factor for CSMIA’s success, and the airport continues throughout 2020 to offer cutting-edge technology. Additionally, CSMIA offers a CarterPorter (CarterX) service, alternative baggage pick-up and drop service. Furthermore, by setting a benchmark and introducing various ‘first-of-its-kind’ services in technology, retail, food and beverage amongst others, CSMIA is changing the global perception of Indian airports.
ASQ Award is the highest possible reward that recognizes the best airports in the world. The ASQ surveys are conducted worldwide across airports where passengers are interviewed to rate the airport services before boarding their flight. The scientific methodology and strict quality control procedure following global standards undertaken by the committee is a proof of the award’s fairness in adjudging the airport’s excellence in service parameters that go beyond satisfying the needs of travellers.
