Skytrax, an airline and airport review and rankings organization, presented World Airport Awards to two airports where Louis Berger provided consultancy services during construction: the Mariscal Sucre International Airport in Quito, Ecuador, and the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius.
The Mariscal Sucre International Airport was declared the best regional airport in South America and third best airport in South American overall. It also placed third in the Best Airport Staff in South America category and was ranked sixth Best World Airport that Accommodate 5-10 Million Passengers per Year and seventh Most Improved Airport.
The Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport was named the fourth best airport in Africa, and was recognized as one of top 10 best airports with under 5 million passengers per year.
Louis Berger managed the construction of Mariscal Sucre International Airport, the first greenfield airport in Latin America. The project team reviewed designs, collaborating with multiple agencies to ensure the airport could withstand magnitude-9 earthquakes in the high seismic risk location, and supervised construction.
Louis Berger and Ammann & Whitney, a Louis Berger company, provided technical advisory services for the construction of the new 57,000-square-meter terminal at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.
The World Airport Awards are highly-coveted quality accolades that are determined based on the independent results of Skytrax’s global customer satisfaction survey. Launched in 1999, this annual survey has grown to include 550 airports and responses from 13.25 million customers.
