Singapore’s Changi world best
Singapore’s Changi Airport has been named the best airport in the world for the fourth consecutive year in Skytrax’s World Airport Awards.
(Fiji Airways begins direct Nadi-Singapore-Nadi flights from Tuesday.) Changi, which bagged the top spot for the seventh time, also won for best airport for leisure amenities and was hard to beat with a rooftop swimming pool and spa, free 24hour cinema, and even butterfly and cactus gardens.
The best is apparently yet to come, moreover, with Changi in the process of building a massive 10-storey glass. And steel terminal that will house the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and a huge park when it opens in 2018. South Korea’s Incheon International Airport, Germany’s Munich Airport, Japan’s Tokyo International, and Hong Kong International rounded out the top five. Two other Japanese airports featured in the top 10 with Chubu Centrair Nagoya claiming sixth place and Kansai International placing ninth. Rounding off the top 10 were Switzerland’s Zurich Airport in seventh place. Britain’s London Heathrow and Doha’s Hamad International copping the eighth and 10th spots. Canada’s Vancouver International was the highest ranked airport in North America. The annual Skytrax awards are based on the world’s largest airport customer satisfaction survey, with more than 13 million nominations from passengers. Skytrax announced its top 100 and individual award winners at the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Cologne, Germany..
