The city’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA) has been awarded the prestigious five-star rating by the British Safety Council for its Health and Safety Management System.

RGIA is the only airport in the world to receive the coveted award, considered a prestigious safety award globally, a release said.

Outside the aviation industry, only a few firms in the country like Asian Paints, Tata Motors, GAIL, Reliance and L&T have received the award in the last 10 years.
