Changi is world's best airport for 7th year running

Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport was awarded the prestigious Skytrax World Airport Awards for being the best among all airports in the post-Soviet space.

On April 17, Jewel Changi Airport will open its doors to the world, he said.

This is the 10th time in total that Changi has won the award in they history of the World Airport Awards.

Elsewhere in Canada, Toronto's Pearson International came in at No. 50 worldwide, and Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International 62nd. Incheon remains a stalwart of the airport rankings, also nabbing an award for World's Best Transit Airport.

Moving up one from 3 place previous year, Tokyo Haneda International Airport is the fourth busiest in the world and was voted 2nd best airport in the world.

Travellers and visitors will have access to about 280 shops and restaurants as well as leisure facilities in the mixed-use development. Tokyo Haneda in Japan placed second, and Seoul Incheon in Korea placed third.

In receiving the award, Changi Airport Group chief executive Lee Seow Hiang said: "This achievement was made possible by the strong support from our airport partners".

The Skytrax World Airport Awards survey is the biggest world-wide survey monitoring the satisfaction of travellers with air transport.

The win was announced at the 2019 Skytrax World Airports Awards on Thursday night.

"This is one of the most prestigious professional awards we have achieved in global aviation and one of the most important feedback for us, as the passengers themselves have decided on the victor".

"As airports seek to develop and maximise customer loyalty and repeat business, facilities and product standards depend largely on investment, whereas staff service requires motivation, enthusiasm and team work, and clearly this is being well provided at Gold Coast Airport".

Maybe next year, when Jewel Changi is up and running, it might stand a chance in the airport terminal rankings.
