INDIANAPOLIS -

For the fourth straight year, Indianapolis International Airport has earned a top honor in what's considered the world's premier passenger service recognition program. The Airports Council International named the Indy airport best in North America in its 2015 Airport Service Quality Awards.

Indianapolis International Airport also earned the honor in 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2010. The annual ACI ASQ awards are based on air traveler surveys at more than 300 airports around the world. Those surveys cover factors including airport staff, waiting areas and cleanliness.

The airport currently boasts more nonstops, 44, than at any time in the past decade. Executive Director Mario Rodriguez recently told Inside INdiana Business Television that travelers can expect "a Seattle announcement very soon."

Earlier this month, the Indianapolis Airport Authority Board delayed a vote on a proposed $500 million global brain health center and sports and entertainment development at the former terminal site.
