Once again, this year’s winners were revealed during a special awards ceremony to coincide with the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Geneva.

The winners are decided after a massive survey of airport customers from around the world, with a staggering 12.1 million responses this year!

So, which airport was deemed the world’s best by all these people? Here are some clues: this is the fourth time the winner has collected this accolade, last claiming victory back in 2010… which means it’s not last year’s winner Incheon International Airport.

  2. Incheon International Airport
  3. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

"In winning this prestigious accolade, Singapore Changi cements its place as one of the world's favourite airports and Skytrax offer their sincere congratulations on what has been a fantastic year of achievement" said Edward Plaisted, Chairman of Skytrax. "Changi airport continues to be a leader and innovator within the industry and this in our opinion, is a key reason why it has remained ranked amongst the top-3 airports for the last 14 years of the awards."

  1. I travel quit often between Penang(PEN) and Bangkok(BKK) and both airports are great.
    Penang after the renovation is very convenient not hours before departer you have to be there, and Bangkok BKK is great, everything is there.

  2. I was surprised to see Vancouver in the top 10.....I don't think it is that nice.
