It was quite a buzz in the media when the Jaipur International Airport was awarded with the ‘Airport Service Quality’ award.
It is matter of concern for the city and the state that the Jaipur International Airport has not succeeded in providing ample and quality services to its passengers.
Passengers, who fly from the airport, have submitted their feedback for the troubles caused to them at the airport. Taking into account all the feedback received from the passengers and other potential travellers, Jaipur International Airport’s panel of administrative members agreed to the thought that the Jaipur Airport is not the best airport in comparison to other airports in the country.
Award taken down: The award of the 'Best Airport' has also been taken down from the Jaipur International Airport.
Singapore’s Changi Airport has succeeded in providing 24 hours free movie theatres, roof top swimming pools, snooze lounges and other innovative ideas for public service and satisfaction.
Travellers can board the airplane with the help of a 4 floor high slide quickly. Provision of all these services to the people flying from the airport had led the airport to bag the Airport Service Quality (ASQ) award.

The arrival gate at the Jaipur International Airport is crowded with travellers gaining entry to the airport. On the other hand, people need to clear the space away for vehicles to come, halt and let the people get off from the vehicle and enter the airport doors.
Mostly a chaos is observed at the airport between the people and the vehicles, both trying to cover maximum space. Amidst all this, a lady was seen to come and halt at the airport, park her two-wheeler and there she stood and began to click pictures (selfies to make it more exact) with her family.
What was surprising was that none of the security guards were bothered to make a note of this activity and to ask the lady to not indulge into this and immediately stop and clear the space.
To display the arrival and departure timings of the airplanes at the airport, a big digital screen has been put up at the arrival gate itself.
The part of the screen which displays the departure time of the airplanes is not in a working-mode and the part of the screen that displays the arrival time of the airplanes runs some hours ahead or some hours behind in time.
There is an LCD screen inside the airport though, which displays the appropriate arrival and departure time of the airplanes.
