Europe as a whole has a huge mix of very bad and very good airports. Even London's 2 key global hubs are fairly bad to use. Paris CDG is quite unbelievably bad if you are not using the newer terminal. The Germans have done a good job with their international hubs though.

Changi is impressive as well. Their new terminal is very modern. One thing Changi has that HK doesn't is a swimming pool.

Dhaka Zia International Airport, Bangladesh

Zia International Airport is the largest airport in Bangladesh. It started operation in 1981, and was named after Bangladesh's former president, Ziaur Rahman. It is the hub of Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

Nearly 52% of the country's international and domestic arrivals and departures occur through Zia Airport, while country's second largest international airport at Chittagong handles about 17% of the passengers. About 3.8 million international and 0.8 million domestic passengers and 105,000 tons of freight and mail annually pass through Zia International Airport.

Zia Airport has terminal buildings, hangars, technical areas, a freight village (warehouse), and other modern equipment for handling aircraft. It connects almost all the major cities of the world with Bangladesh







For me its the best airport in the world

Enjoy the relaxing ambience of the Balinese-themed swimming pool and poolside area operated by Harilela Hospitality Pte Ltd. Passengers staying at the Ambassador Transit Hotel may use the pool and Jacuzzi for free. Otherwise, a small fee of S$13.65 is charged to non-residents for the use of the swimming pool and Jacuzzi, including the use of the shower facilities, a towel and a complimentary non-alcoholic drink from the bar. The swimming pool is located at

This is not a public facility. It's part of the hotel, and admission is charged for outsiders. In Hong Kong, the swimming pool is also located at the airport hotel.

SG's airport is more 'homely' though.

I love that ad! There's also the girl with "delight" and the guy too! No idea what they're selling though.

Anyway, T2 looks more like a shopping mall than an airport!

Couple more:

Vancouver's international terminal looks sleek and is great to use, but they need to work on the domestic one.
