But according to that, Incheon wins 1st prize.

So we've still lost our crown?

HK is still one of the best whether these guys give awards to other ones.

AETRA is one of several major airport surveys released on a regular basis. Yes, HKIA is now 2nd behind Incheon in this study, but the top airports are quite consistent year over year.

International service monitor ranks Incheon Int'l Airport No. 1 in departure clearance
9 March 2006
Korea.net news

Incheon International Airport has been ranked first in terms of departure clearance service and second in entry clearance service for passengers in the third quarter of 2005 among some 60 international airports of 44 countries.

The rankings were given by the AETRA Airport Service Monitoring Evaluation, according to the Ministry of Justice on Wednesday (March 8). AETRA is an airport customer satisfaction benchmarking program covering 66 airports worldwide.

IIA's immigration control service was ranked 16th in 2002, 23rd in 2003, and 7th in 2004 under the AETRA program.

Thanks largely to the top performance evaluation late last year, Incheon was chosen as the best airport for 2005 during the second International Airport Service Quality Conference and Exhibition, beating out Singapore's Changgi, Japan's Narita, and Hong Kong's Cheklapkok.

KLIA is more modern than Changi but I prefer Changi's efficiency and services.

I was at Incheon last year and the departure and arrival clearance was not as efficient as Changi. I end up spending a lot more time waiting in queue than in Changi.

Hong Kong has issue with the arrival clearance.

To me, Changi is still the best. Has not been to KLIA for 2 years now but I understand it was Ok as well.

The one thing Changi has that other airports don't have is the availability of the same services for all departing and arriving passengers. This has managed to prevent the "rush to the immigration counter" traffic that we are seeing in the other airport.

At Jakarta, Bangkok, Manila, Narita (esp. terminal 2), Hong Kong, Pudong Shanghai, and Sydney, arriving passengers are always competing in a race to the immigration counter.

In HK, if you have a Permament Identity Card, you don't have to compete. In fact there's hardly anyone in that line

I also had a problem with the lineup at the international immigration counters at Incheon. All the Korean nationals had cleared while the foreigners were still stuck in the long line. In the end, they had to send foreigners through the Korean national counters to reduce the lineup.

I also had to endure long waits in Vancouver, Toronto, Bangkok, and Heathrow T4.

I think this problem is common around the world. It takes much less time to clear local passports than a foreign one, especially since the immigration officer often stamps a foreign passport upon entry (and sometimes on exit as well).

There are some cases that even the time to clear local passports are in the same level as foreign ones like in Manila for example. Since alot of Filipinos overseas arrive at the airport each day.

It depends on the immigration control and risk level the government is willing to take. Some countries require citizens to carry passports upon re-entry. That will lengthen processing time. Other places are more lenient, such as using an ID card or other photo ID, so it takes less time. Domestic passengers have it easy and don't need to worry about buying and carrying a passport.

It's the case in Manila since the country doesn't use ID cards or photo IDs upon immigration. They show passports.
