IATA Announces 2011 Eagle Awards
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) awarded its 2011 Eagle Awards to NAV CANADA and Prague Airport in recognition of their outstanding achievements in customer satisfaction, cost efficiency, and continuous improvement.
IATA Exceptional Recognition awards were also presented to DGAC Chile (Chile’s provider of air navigation services) and SCL (Santiago Airport).
The presentation was made in front of 700 industry leaders gathered in Singapore for the 67th IATA Annual General Meeting and World Air Transport Summit.
Eagle Awards, which honour air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and airports, are based on the recommendations of the independent Eagle Awards Panel, chaired by Dr. Assad Kotaite, former Secretary General of the International Civil Aviation Organization.
“Eagle Awards are highly-prized recognitions of airports and ANSPs which strive for excellent service, better cost efficiency, and continuous improvement. In today's challenging environment, all providers need to make similar efforts in a spirit of genuine partnership,” said Kotaite.
"I congratulate NAV CANADA and Prague Airport on their Eagle Awards, together with DGAC Chile and SCL for their Exceptional Recognitions. They are great examples of how dedicated industry partners can cooperate to improve performance and cost efficiency," said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA's Director General and CEO.
