Singapore's Changi Airport Is No Longer the World's Best Airport
It's here: Skytrax's annual list of the best airports in the world is finally out. This year, Singapore's Changi Airport has been dethroned from the top spot.
Year after year, Singapore's Changi Airport landed at the top of the list. So, it's actually a pretty big deal that the airport landed at the third spot. Hamad International Airport and Tokyo Haneda Airport were first and second place this time around.
Doha's Hamad International Airport claimed first place while also winning the awards for the Best Airport in the Middle East, the World’s Best Airport in the 25 to 35 million Passenger category, and for the Best Airport Staff in the Middle East.
Check out the 10 best airports in the world below.
- Hamad International Airport
- Tokyo Haneda Airport
- Singapore Changi Airport
- Incheon International Airport
- Tokyo Narita Airport
- Munich Airport
- Zurich Airport
- London Heathrow Airport
- Kansai International Airport
- Hong Kong International Airport
"We are delighted to announce that Hamad International Airport has been voted the World’s Best Airport 2021. Inaugurated in 2014, Hamad International Airport has rapidly become a customer favourite and moved from No 3 in the world in 2020 to be ranked World’s Best Airport this year. Achieving this honour is very much a team effort, and our congratulations go to the Management, staff and stakeholders at Hamad International Airport that help make this happen," says Edward Plaisted of Skytrax.
He continues, "As travel hubs worldwide have been impacted by the pandemic, Hamad International Airport was undeterred by the global travel disruptions and continued with its expansion plans while introducing additional airport health and safety standards. As the Official Airport Partner for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 we wish Hamad International Airport every success in helping to host such a major event.
