The World’s Best Airports 2016 by the SkyTrax World Airport Awards have been revealed last Wednesday in Cologne, Germany.
Singapore’s Changi Airport once again made it to the top of the list.
“To be named the World’s Best Airport by SkyTrax for the fourth year running is a significant achievement for Changi Airport and a clear affirmation that we continue to hit the right notes in our pursuit of service excellence,” airport CEO Lee Seow Hiang said in a statement issued by SkyTrax.
“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,” he added.
Some of the many great features of the Changi airport are spas, saunas, showers, a gym, and cinemas. There is even a koi pond and a butterfly garden.
The number 2 airport is still the Incheon International Airport in South Korea, which has been on the number 2 spot since 2013. This airport is one of the busiest in the world, and has received other awards such as the world’s cleanest airport and the world’s best international transit airport.
One of the biggest jumpers this year is the Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar, which was at number 22 last year. It’s now on the top 10 spot–the first Middle East airport to be on the ranks.
