Rawalpindi - Benazir Bhutto International Airport Islamabad has been excluded from the list of 10 Worst Airports in the world due to committed efforts of Civil Aviation Authority for improving travel experience at the airport,  said spokesperson yesterday.

Benazir Bhutto International Airport has been in the list of the ’10 Worst Airports in The World’ since 2012 when it was ranked the 3rd. In 2013 it was ranked the 4th worst airport and in 2014, it secured the number one position and was categorized as the worst airport in the world.  Every year, Sleeping in Airports conducts a survey asking travellers to rate their airport experiences based on the services and facilities available within the terminal, cleanliness, customer service, comfort and their overall airport experience. Those which are included in the category of 10 ‘Worst Airports’ of the world secure the most negative feedback from voters. These airports fall flat in terms of providing any kind of enjoyable overall airport experience. Instead, they’re dirty, uncomfortable and unfriendly and lack the most basic of services and amenities, the spokesperson said.  Being operational 24 x 7, BBIA Islamabad has approximately 13,000 passengers per day both domestic & international regardless of traveling class. Proactive campaigns promoting CAA facilities, new initiatives, safety, security and customer satisfaction has ensured improved ranking of BBIAP Islamabad.  This is a tribute to the standards maintained by CAA especially the new director general who has been in office for only 10 months.
