The QCI conducted the assessment on December 11, 2018, and the Visakhapatnam Airport stood in the third place.The airports were assessed area-wise with the pre-defined parameters including trolley management, navigation/signage facility, solid waste management, car parking, traffic management, airside management, among others, ensuring that the process was independent and unbiased.
The parameters were then extracted from the on-ground assessment and evaluated. The data analysed was further compiled to understand the airports performance on different parameters, allocating weightages to obtain the final results in the assessment.
