He said: "Our airport has been picked out from an amazing line-up of fantastic airports worldwide.
"We have listened to our passengers, our business and airline partners and we have invested millions to bring the airport up to the high standards our customers rightly expect and deserve.
"Much work is still to be done but I'm particularly pleased and honoured to see our efforts have clearly been recognised and appreciated by those flying to and from Aberdeen Airport."
The airport service quality survey was based on almost 200,000 questionnaires completed by passengers in 2007
The official awards ceremony will be held in Shanghai in April.
