CHANGI AIRPORT NO LONGER BEST AIRPORT, “WE ARE 2ND”

The competition for the title of “world’s best airport” has been a tight one in recent years, with Qatar’s Hamad International Airport in Doha and Singapore Changi Airport leading the pack. However, this year has seen a shakeup in the rankings, with Hamad International taking the top spot in the Skytrax World Airport Awards 2024.

The Skytrax World Airport Awards are determined by a customer satisfaction survey, and this year’s results saw Singapore Changi being edged out of the top spot by its Middle Eastern rival. The awards are highly regarded in the aviation industry, and being named the world’s best airport is a significant achievement.

Asia had a strong showing in this year’s awards, with Seoul Incheon Airport taking third place and being named the most family-friendly airport. Tokyo’s twin facilities of Haneda and Narita took fourth and fifth spots, respectively. Hong Kong airport also saw a significant boost, moving up 22 positions to 11th place after the city shook off its Covid-19 hangover and passenger numbers rose.

Europe continued to have a strong showing, with Paris Charles de Gaulle, Munich, Zurich and Istanbul all maintaining positions in the top 10. However, US airports were nowhere to be seen near the top of the table, with the highest ranked, Seattle-Tacoma, slipping six places to 24.

Hamad International Airport, which celebrates its 10th year of operations this year, was understandably thrilled with the recognition. “We are truly honored that passengers have voted us Best Airport in the World for a third time,” said Qatar Airways group chief executive officer Badr Al-Meer.
