—Said Jury Chairman, and head of the Africa Logistics Association, Mr.Ukata Christian Ifeanyi.
Erbil International Airport is honored to receive such an award. We were delighted last year by this award, and I and colleagues, are equally delighted this year by the acknowledgement of our peers in the industry. My thanks go to the jury for their words of praise and acknowledgement of the progress we are making in Kurdistan. 2013 has been a challenging but rewarding year for Erbil International Airport. We are grateful to our airline partners who have seen the potential Erbil and Kurdistan has to offer and we look forward to welcoming more new airlines in due course as demand for air travel grows and the dynamic Kurdish economy expands.I must use this award to place on record my thanks to all the staff at EIA and to employees from the security, customs and immigration agencies. Successful airports are built on good team work. You can have the best hardware in the world in the form of infrastructure, buildings and facilities, but unless you have the software inthe form of people, process and procedures they will not work.
—Thanking the Jury Chairman, Airport Director Talar Faiq Salih
