Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport (LGBI) in Guwahati has earned international recognition by securing the ISO 10002:2018 certification. This achievement follows a rigorous assessment of the airport's Quality Management System, Management, and Airport Development processes.

ISO 10002:2018 is a globally recognised certification, particularly significant in the field of Quality Management Systems for airport operations, management, and development. LGBI Airport's attainment of this certification underscores its unwavering commitment to implementing industry best practices for quality management, operational efficiency, and development initiatives.

A spokesperson for Guwahati Airport expressed pride in achieving this prestigious ISO certification, highlighting their dedication to maintaining a reliable quality management system while adhering to industry standards and best practices. The spokesperson also congratulated the entire team for their collective efforts in earning the ISO certification.

Guwahati International Airport serves as a crucial gateway to Northeast India, connecting passengers to twenty-four domestic and two international destinations.

In August 2023, the airport recorded nearly 4.8 lakh passengers, marking a significant increase compared to the same month the previous year. The top four domestic destinations from Guwahati include Imphal, Delhi, Kolkata, and Bengaluru. The airport also offers international flights to Singapore and Paro.

During August 2023, the airport managed nearly 3,839 flight movements, representing a 14 per cent increase compared to August 2022. This growth can be attributed to the airport's passenger-centric approach and the resurgence in air travel following the pandemic.

Guwahati Airport is optimistic about maintaining steady growth during the upcoming winter schedule, commencing in October. With the winter season typically witnessing a rise in passenger numbers, LGBI anticipates a robust surge during this period, reflecting the continued recovery of the aviation sector.
