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..
