I love the not yet built DMIA in Clark, which is supposed to be larger than HK's and Bangkok's new terminal.

My favorite so far is Incheon.

I really hope that in Schönefeld, they will study a more comfortable solution for those who arrive from the S-Bahn station and go to the terminal...beacuse doing the long path with bags and luggages, especially in the not-so-light german winter is terrible! (I've already experienced )

I thought I saw a shuttle bus between the S-Bahn and the terminal when I landed there last year.

it would be bether in 2011, the station will be down th terminal and you only have to take a lift. It would be one of the modernst airports in the world.

My personal ranking: ( for airports above 10 million pax. a year ):

1) Singapore -- the best of the best-- a perfect airport-- internet connections everywhere, cheap and nice food, tremendous facility etc. 9.78 /10

2) Nagoya -- obviously Japan's best airport, better than KIX 6.32/10

3) Hong Kong Int'l -- previously my2nd fav. but then replaced by Nagoya after my visit there. 6.29/10

4) Incheon-- stunning architecture, world-class service. 6.25/10
5) Munich-- modish, truly European, courteous staff 6.20/10

I think singapore is great but not perfect...................
No doubt HKG should be up there plus the CX lounge, is a WOW!!!
KUL is great for flying out or in, but not for transit, the place can get really bored.
ICN is stunning, the new train connect to Gimpo and Seoul are perfect!!!
LAX is the worst no doubt there....haha

Yes, I notice on the maps there is now a train service between Incheon and Gimpo, connecting to the subway. I saw the train on the way into Seoul from the airport and was wondering what that was. Hopefully, the airport line can be extended into central Seoul in the future. Gimpo is still a long ride on the subway into the city.

HKIA Named Best International Airport and
Asia-Pacific's Most Efficient Airport

Hong Kong Airport Authority Press Release

(HONG KONG, 8 July 2007) - Hong Kong International Airport's reputation for outstanding efficiency and service has been recognised with the Air Transport Research Society's 2007 Asia-Pacific Airport Efficiency Excellence Award and the Best International Airport Prize in the 2007 TravelWeekly (Asia) Industry Awards.

Stanley Hui, Chief Executive Officer of Airport Authority Hong Kong, said, "These awards, which were presented by both academics and our peers in the travel industry, are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the 60,000 people who comprise the airport community. Every day, we and our business partners at HKIA deliver an efficient, friendly and customer-focused experience for our passengers and business partners."

HKIA won the Air Transport Research Society award after receiving the top score in a field of 30 major Asian airports. Conducted by international aviation experts, the Global Airport Benchmarking Project measured productivity and efficiency, costs and competitiveness, financial results and airport charges.

HKIA was nominated for the Best International Airport award by a panel of travel industry experts. The final award was determined in a polling process that saw readers of TravelWeekly magazine cast more than 160,000 individual votes.

"By combining modern, efficient facilities with an airport-wide focus on customer service, we will continue to lead our industry and deliver the greatest possible benefit to passengers using our airport and the people of Hong Kong," added Mr Hui.

HKIA, T2 was great! The place was uncrowded, but the food court was full of people!
