Singapore’s Changi International Airport has once again claimed the top spot in Skytrax’s annual ranking of the world’s best airports. Skytrax, a UK-based airline and airport review site, surveys travelers worldwide, asking them to rate their entire airport experience, from check-in to departures and everything in between.
Changi Airport previously held the top position for eight consecutive years, but dropped a few spots in 2021 and 2022 due to reduced passenger numbers during the pandemic.
Changi Airport offers a wide range of facilities and amenities for all types of travelers, including families, business travelers, and leisure travelers. Some of its most notable features include a 40-meter indoor waterfall, a butterfly garden, an IMAX cinema, and over 280 retail and dining outlets.
Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar, which won the top spot in 2021 and 2022, took second place in this year’s ranking. The top five were rounded out by Tokyo’s Haneda Airport, Incheon International Airport, and Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport.
In addition to the overall ranking, Skytrax also hands out other awards, including regional prizes. Changi Airport won the award for Best Airport in Asia, as well as World’s Best Airport Dining and World’s Best Airport Leisure Amenities. Its on-site hotel, the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, was named the World’s Best Airport Hotel for the eighth consecutive year.
Other winners include Hamad International Airport for World’s Best Airport Shopping, Best Airport in the Middle East, and Cleanest Airport in the Middle East; Tokyo Haneda Airport for the overall cleanest airport; Bahrain International Airport for World’s Best Airport Baggage Delivery; Incheon Airport for the airport with the best staff and immigration processing; New York LaGuardia Airport’s Terminal B for World’s Best New Airport Terminal; Seattle-Tacoma International Airport for Best Airport in North America; Cape Town International Airport for Best Airport in Africa; Delhi Airport for Best Airport in India and South Asia; and Bogota’s El Dorado International Airport for Best Airport in South America.
