Southampton Airport awarded platinum for its porcelain
10 January 2013
Southampton Airport has again been recognised for its outstanding facilities by achieving platinum in the 2012 Loo of the Year Awards (LOYA).
Southampton’s platinum rating was one of only three awarded in the airport category. It recognises the exceptional levels of cleanliness and maintenance achieved by Amey, the company that cleans and maintains all facilities at the airport. It also recognises the wide range and high standard of toilet facilities provided for the airport’s two million annual passengers.
The annual Loo of the Year awards are now in their 25th year. They independently run and promoted by the British Toilet Association, with a simple objective to encourage the highest possible standards in all types of 'away from home' or public toilets.
Mike Bone, MD of the Loo of the Year Awards said: “Southampton Airport achieved the top Platinum Award grade in the 2012 Loo of the Year Awards for International Arrivals Hall and Main Concourse toilet facilities. LOYA inspected over 5,000 individual toilets throughout the UK and were impressed by the high level of facilities provided at Southampton Airport and the high standards of cleaning and maintenance.”
Hazel Screech, Terminal Operations Manager, Southampton Airport, commented “We’re very proud to have received these awards, and of the whole team here at the airport whose hard work and dedication has been recognised.”
Karen Pattar, Amey’s operations manager at Southampton Airport added: “It’s fantastic that our toilet facilities have been rated amongst the best in the country by LOYA. We have a dedicated team working hard to ensure every passenger at Southampton Airport has the best possible travelling experience, and will continue our efforts to make sure this remains the case.”
