Hamad International Airport (HIA) has been awarded the ISO 55001:2014 certification, the international standard for asset management, making Qatar’s airport the first in the Middle East to achieve the accreditation from the British Standards Institution (BSI).

The prestigious certificate was presented to HIA Chief Operating Officer, Badr al-Meer, by BSI Group Assurance Director Pietro Foschi at the BSI office in London, in the presence of Michael McMillan, Vice President of Facilities Management at HIA.

This accreditation comes after HIA was ranked ‘5th Best Airport in the World’ at last week’s Skytrax World Airport Awards 2018. HIA was also honored with the title of ‘Best Airport in the Middle East’ and was named ‘Best Staff Service in the Middle East’. HIA’s duty free offering was also recognized, with the airport being ranked the ‘4th Best Airport for Shopping’ in the world.
