Kirsten O’Neill, Customer Experience Research Manager, Dubai Airports ---------------------------------The ACI ASQ programme is one of a suite of research tools we use to help define our customer’s functional and emotional needs and their perceptions as they travel through our airport. The ASQ results provide a baseline measurement tool, which we use as part of our planning process for the setting of short-, medium- and long-term customer experience targets. Has your airport implemented any changes and/or improvements because of ASQ? Absolutely. For DXB to be the biggest and the best, Dubai Airports must be responsive to its customers at this scale. We are taking onboard what our customers have told us through both the ASQ programme and our ongoing internal research programme to enhance our service and the customer experience.
