Sac Intl Airport Ranks High in Customer Service

For the second year in a row, Sacramento International Airport has been ranked 4th in North America for customer service by Airports Council International (ACI), the international trade association for commercial airports.

The awards were determined by the cumulative results of Airport Service Quality (ASQ) surveys collected in 2013.
