As we begin to travel again, our passengers can be assured that our team’s priority is to provide the best and safest airport experience possible.”

Skytrax’s World Airport Awards are based on responses to customer satisfaction surveys, as benchmarked and ranked by airport passengers around the world. The survey operated from August 2020 until July 2021 with many travelers voting for their favorite / best airport based on pre-pandemic travel experiences, while others voted after their COVID-19 airport experience during the past 12 months. More than 550 airports across world regions are ranked in a number of areas, and the awards are independent of any airport control or input.
