Qatar’s Hamad Airport now best in the world


PETALING JAYA: Qatar’s Hamad International Airport has wrested the title of “World’s Best Airport” from Singapore Changi Airport.

For the past few years, both have been the top two competitors for the number one position in the Skytrax World Airport Awards, Bloomberg reported.Changi has won the award for 12 years, including its consecutive wins from 2013 to 2020.

However, Hamad International Airport emerged as a strong contender in recent years and won its first award in 2021, with this year being its third win.

All the top five spots were taken up by Asian countries, with South Korea’s Incheon International Airport bagging third place.

Japan’s Haneda Airport and Narita International Airport took the fourth and fifth places on the list, respectively.

Incheon was also crowned this year’s “World’s Most Family-Friendly Airport”. Over in the West, Europe fared well with Paris Charles de Gaulle, Munich, Zurich and Istanbul airports all maintaining their seats in the top 10.

Another notable mention is the Hong Kong International Airport, which has greatly improved its position from 33rd to 11th place.

Airports in the United States have slipped out of the top 20 list altogether, with the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport losing its 18th spot in 2023 to Japan’s Kansai International Airport this year.

The Skytrax World Airport Awards rankings are determined based on customer satisfaction survey.
