SINGAPORE: Changi Airport has been voted the World’s Best Airport for the fourth year in a row, according to an annual global survey of air travellers.
This is the seventh time in 16 years that the airport has picked up the title at the World Airport Awards. The airport was also awarded Best Airport for Leisure Amenities.
The awards are based on a Skytrax survey of 13.25 million travellers across 106 nationalities, and included 550 airports worldwide.
Coming in second place was South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, followed by Munich Airport and Tokyo International Airport (Haneda). In fifth place was the Hong Kong International Airport, followed by Chubu Centrair Nagoya and Zurich Airport. London’s Heathrow Airport, Kansai International Airport and Hamad International Airport took the eighth, ninth and 10th spots, respectively.
"To be voted by customers as the world's best airport four years in succession is a most remarkable achievement for Changi Airport Singapore, and is clear testament to the airport's popularity amongst air travellers,” said Skytrax CEO Edward Plaisted.
Changi Airport Group CEO Lee Seow Hiang said: "We do not take this recognition for granted; it is the extraordinary effort and commitment of the entire airport community that drives Changi’s success. We thank our passengers and partners alike for their continued support and confidence in us."
