WORLD’S BEST AIRPORT
SINGAPORE AIRPORT VOTED FOR SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
Singapore Changi Airport has been named as the World’s Best Airport by air travelers for the sixth consecutive year at the 2018 Skytrax World Airport Awards, held at Passenger Terminal EXPO in Stockholm, Sweden. This is the ninth time the Singapore airport has won the top international title since 2000. The airport was also named the best for leisure amenities.
The airport was also named the best for leisure amenities. Changi Airport is very focused on making the airport experience comfortable and convenient and continues to innovate with new product and services features.
What makes it the best in the world? Perhaps it’s the rooftop pool with a jacuzzi or its multitude of gardens: orchid, butterfly, sunflower, cactus, water lily, and “enchanted,” just to name a few. Or perhaps it’s the movie theater, XBox 360 station, or kinetic art installation of 1,216 aluminum and copper raindrops. Then there’s the food—so much food! Dozens of gourmet restaurants, six expansive dining halls including one that specializes in Singaporean street food, and one
Hello Kitty Orchid Garden Café. That is, if travelers even need to waste time eating. Luxury and trendy stores are all around, like Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Hermès, and not one, but three different Adidas shops.
And it doesn’t look like Changi will relinquish its crown anytime soon. According to Bloomberg, it’s working on adding a fifth terminal as well as a “shopping-and-dining facility called the Jewel as passengers increase.”
