mandated airport-specific and continuing education training using ANTN Digicast’s
Web-based training system. ASUR CANCUN is one of only 70 airports nationwide to
earn the honor for 2012.
We are proud to receive the ANTN Digicast Excellence in Airport Training Award
because it means that our employees are among the best trained regarding safety and
preparedness in our operations. “This is a result of our compromise with quality service,
safety and security that have distinguished our company, allowing us to incorporate in
our company the best practices in safety and security that prevail now days in the
world”, said Carlos Trueba, ASUR Cancun Director. “Now we celebrate to be placed
among the 70 airports that received a similar award even though we are not a US but a
Mexican airport”
The award levels are based on total training programs watched and total number
