The highly anticipated awards event, recognising leaders across the aviation industry, was held in Brighton on 23rd November 2023. This year marks the ninth occasion that Farnborough Airport has been awarded this coveted title and its third year in a row.

FBO Director at Farnborough Airport, Dominic Osborne, said: “Receiving this esteemed accolade is an immense privilege and we extend our heartfelt thanks to all who supported us through their votes. Our appreciation also goes to the entire Farnborough Airport team for their unwavering dedication to delivering exceptional service and operational excellence. Their commitment allows us to continually enhance our facilities and services, surpassing the expectations of our valued customers.”

The ACA’s annual awards showcase excellence in the aviation sector and award companies for excellence within specific fields. Following a global nomination process, winners are chosen through a combination of member voting and deliberations of the ACA’s industry adjudication panel.

Farnborough Airport was the UK’s first airfield in aviation history and home to the country’s first powered flight in 1908. Over the years, the Airport has continued to be a leader in aviation and pioneers in sustainability in the industry. The Farnborough Airport team is committed to minimising environmental impact and continually improving environmental performance throughout its operations. In 2018, Farnborough Airport was the first business aviation airport to be awarded carbon neutral status by Airports Council International Europe, and in July 2021 the Airport introduced the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel. In June 2022, Farnborough Airport launched its Net Zero Roadmap, outlining its commitment to be Net Zero by 2030, setting some of the most ambitious Net Zero targets in the aviation sector. In 2023, Farnborough Airport became the first UK business aviation airport to achieve Level 4+, the highest level of carbon accreditation and announced plans to install one of the largest solar installations in the South East, enabling the Airport to reduce its controllable emissions as set out in its Net Zero Roadmap.
