in terms of shopping and eating, I always liked Narita Airport... a very nice food court, restaurant complex, and lots and lots of stores that aren't all the same duty-free wine/purse/makeup stores that you find in all the other airports out there. Incheon Airport is also quite nice because there is an internet bar that doesn't overcharge you for internet, so you can squeeze in a few games of starcraft before the next connecting flight. By far, the worst is Heathrow, followed by LAX.

Not too long ago, David Ben-Gurion Intl Airport in Tel Aviv built a new terminal that now allows for planes to go directly to the terminal rather than taking a shuttle bus from the runway.

Changi still got the best in performance imo by far. Thank God they have been renovating the interior but the control tower still look so 60s (OK OK I know it's hard to change that)
Know I'm just curious with Barajas

I'm not a big fan of multi-terminal airports. It's a pain to transfer between them. I like to have everything under one roof.

I think that most airports are pretty ugly actually. Why cant their be any airport that the goverment spend a little money on? Yeah many airports are goodlooking from the outside but the interior its always the same stiff, boring thing. Why cant their be any postmodern airport or anyone in real future style just to make it a little more funnier?
Well, I really dont like Bejing airport and the Malaysian airport (that some people push for in the beginning of this forum) are really boring in real life. I was there 5 months ago and I didnt got the feeling at all. Bangkoks is a favorit and Tokyo as well.

This one is really breathtaking but it would be surpassed by Dubai's one when it gets built.

Changi Airport is the best Airport I've ever seen. And I think it's won airport of the year more times than any other airport also.

For the seventh time in 10 years, Hong Kong International Airport has been named as the traveller's favourite - being voted World's Best Airport 2008 in the World Airport Awards™
http://www.worldairportawards.com/Aw...irport2008.htm

LONDON - 14th July 2008 : Hong Kong International Airport has been named the World's Best Airport for 2008, in the worldwide passenger survey results released today by Skytrax. Representing a notable achievement, this is the 7th time in ten years that the accolade has been won by Hong Kong International Airport.

Singapore Changi Airport remains firmly positioned itself at the top end of the rankings, in 2nd position worldwide, ahead of Seoul Incheon International Airport in 3rd place. Asian airport dominance of the high survey rankings is topped off by Kuala Lumpur International Airport, which moves up into 4th place in the 2008 results.

"We congratulate Hong Kong for their repeated success in winning the World's best Airport title" said Skytrax CEO, Mr Edward Plaisted. "In recent years, the whole air travel experience has become much more focussed on the time customers spend in the airport environment, and Hong Kong has established itself as a clear passenger favourite in this respect."

"The World Airport Survey evaluates a broad spectrum of product and service touchpoints across the airport experience, covering a wide spectrum of passenger types. Hong Kong was particularly notable for gaining highest satisfaction ratings in such a diverse market. Like any other business, an airport is striving to deliver world-class standards that will make a customer want to use it again, and achieving this level of loyalty requires the highest levels of quality consistency - something where Hong Kong was singled out again and again during the survey."

"Over the last 10 years, the Skytrax World Airport Awards have become recognised as the trusted, global symbol of quality for airports," said Edward Plaisted. "Our survey participants represent the most experienced, diverse and discerning travellers in the marketplace, and airports throughout the world recognize the inherent value that comes with their endorsement."

The 2006 title winner, Singapore Changi Airport, is ranked 2nd in the 2008 World Airport Awards, with Seoul Incheon Airport in 3rd, and KLIA Kuala Lumpur moving into 4th place.

"We again saw a very tight finish to this 2007/8 passenger survey, with very close margins seen between the World's Top 3 airports. The opening of the new Terminal 3 at Singapore Changi was clearly visible from results during the survey, with customer satisfaction levels showing marked increases for this airport over the period it was included. We have yet to see what impact the new Concourse Terminal will have upon passenger ratings for Seoul Incheon Airport, with this being too late to have any impact on these 2008 results" said Plaisted.

Munich Airport is again the winner of Best Airport in Europe title, and also ranked 5th in the world - out of more than 190 airports. San Francisco was named Best Airport North America, ahead of Vancouver (2nd) and Dallas/Fort Worth in 3rd position for the region.

In the Middle East passengers have to wait awhile for airport improvements, with the new airports yet to open in Dubai, Doha and Abu Dhabi. In the meantime, Best Airport for the region is Tel Aviv (1st), Bahrain (2nd) and Muscat (3rd).

Best Airport in Africa is Cape Town, which for the first time has entered the World's Top 10 Airports in 10th position, with Johannesburg ranked 2nd in Africa, ahead of Addis Ababa in 3rd place.

ABOUT THE SURVEY

The World Airport Survey is conducted by UK-based aviation research organisation, Skytrax, with more than 8.2 million questionnaires completed by passengers across the world, during the 10 month survey period.

Passenger interviews include a detailed appraisal for more than 40 categories of product and service quality from check-in to departure, from arrivals to baggage collection - including terminal cleanliness, staff efficiency, staff courtesy, terminal signage, security processing, immigration and customers, walking distances, as well as features like shopping, dining options, internet services.

Skytrax votes KLIA as world’s fourth best


KLIA has been voted as the fourth best airport in the world by British-based air travel research company, Skytrax, Sin Chew Daily reported.

KLIA which was placed fifth last year, is among the four airports in Asia that made it to the top five list this time around.

Hong Kong International Airport was voted the best, followed by Singapore's Changi Airport and Seoul's Incheon International.

Munich Airport in Germany was fifth, followed by Kansai International Airport in Japan, Copenhagen Airport in Denmark, Zurich Airport in Switzerland, Helsinki Airport in Finland and Cape Town International Airport in South Africa.

This is the seventh time the Hong Kong International Airport has won the Airport of the Year title since the award was launched in 2001.

The research was conducted on more than 190 airports worldwide between August 2007 and May this year. A total of 8.2 million tourists from over 97 countries were interviewed.

Hong Kong at number 1. No surprise really. It's a huge multi-terminal building, but the links/train makes moving around a doddle. Very well laid out and it has a very calming and austere ambience that gives it that efficient edge.
