Cybersecurity is an important facilitator for essential aviation safety. The adoption rate for levels of cyber-security protocols at commercial airports is the focus of this research. Scope of this research is limited to cybersecurity maturity model capability norms covering fourteen domains. The paper presents primary data collected from several airport authorities. This survey-based study will be useful in identifying areas for improving operational procedures and developing strong cybersecurity governance at airports. This will allow airports to understand risks and respond proactively by adopting cybersecurity best practices and resilience measures. This study includes domestic, international, privately owned airports, airstrips, or aerodromes. This research found that level one of cyber-security maturity model is the most followed while proactive and advance levels i.e., level 4 and 5 are least adhered to. Most airports appear to have some resources allocated to cyber protection and resilience.
