Edinburgh Airport has been named as one of the top five airports for customer service and facilities in Europe.

The busy hub has been named alongside Malta, Porto, Zurich and Copenhagen by the Airports Council International.

It is the largest UK airport to be named in the awards, which measure customer feedback in 209 airports worldwide.

Edinburgh Airport managing director Kevin Brown said: "I'm delighted with this award."

He added: "2010, with its ash, snow and other challenges, was a difficult year for the team at Edinburgh which makes this feat all the more impressive.

"I'm proud of the way that my team met these challenges head on whilst maintaining focus on the needs of our passengers."
