The Best Airports in the World: A blog about how the one of the best airports in the world.
And as we all know, as with any flight, things can go wrong. We’ve put together this guide to help you if you find yourself delayed.
If your flight is delayed, from the moment you check-in to the moment you reach your final destination, you have a number of rights that are protected by European law EC 261/2004. To make sure these rights are upheld, be sure to speak directly with an airport agent or airline representative when things go awry. They will be able to arrange alternative flights and other options for your trip, and they may even be able to provide you with compensation and reimbursement.
The Best Airports in the World
Airports can be a boring, stressful and intimidating places. But they don’t have to be. Here’s why airports are actually really really cool, and why you should come visit them.
A lot of people complain about airports. They say they are too busy, too crowded, too noisy and too confusing. But I think they’re wrong. Airports are great! And here’s why:
1. They’re all over the place!
There are thousands of airports in the world, which means there is probably one near you! Check out your local airport and see where it can take you – you might be surprised by how close the holiday destinations are that you’ve always wanted to see. Last year my family went on a trip to…
Today, we are proud to unveil the best airports in the world for 2019, along with the annual rankings for the best regional airports and best airports by size. The winners were revealed at the Skytrax World Airport Awards ceremony at Passenger Terminal EXPO in London.
The awards are widely acknowledged as being among the most important accolades in aviation today. Based on 13.73 million passenger surveys, 550 airports worldwide were included in the survey process this year – with flyers across 112 nationalities of different ages and occupations taking part between July 2018 and February 2019.
The survey measures customer satisfaction across a range of key performance indicators at airport service and product levels – from check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration through to departure at the gate.
I have been travelling for work since I was 17 and I can honestly say that that the new Changi Airport is the best airport in the world. It’s not just an airport, it’s a destination in itself.
The first thing that stands out is how clean it is, even after a 12 hour flight from London to Singapore, with hundreds of businessmen and women rushing through the terminals. There’s no sign of paper or rubbish anywhere.
The staff were very polite and helpful. I had trouble finding my terminal to board my connecting flight to Kuala Lumpur but a member of staff saw me struggling and came over straight away to help me find where I needed to be. He walked me there and then politely bowed his head and wished me a safe journey on to Kuala Lumpur.
I’m actually writing this blog post at a charging station in Terminal 3 while I wait for boarding time to Malaysia. Terminal 3 is amazing! There are so many shops and restaurants, as well as free Wifi, TVs and charging stations everywhere! And if you don’t feel like eating at one of the restaurants you can get food delivered to your gate for free! The best part about Terminal 3 is the entertainment deck on level 3. You can go swimming or relax by the pool,
There are two kinds of airports: there’s the kind you’re happy to be leaving, and then there’s the kind you’re sorry you have to leave.
The former is characterized by long lines, surly TSA agents and security staff, overcrowding, and a general sense that a bit of the “travel” experience has been sucked from the experience. The latter has a focus on efficiency and ease of travel, with amenities to make your time in the airport fly by.
To that end, Airport Technology recently released its ranking of the world’s best airports. They took into account several factors when developing their list:
– level of passenger satisfaction
– customer service standards
– range and quality of facilities
– retail revenue per passenger (an indication of shopping options)
– number of destinations served directly
– sustainability practices and environmental measures
– passenger volume (to give smaller airports an edge over larger ones)
We are a group of airline professionals who love to travel and share their experiences in the world’s airports.
From the moment we step into an airport, we take note of everything from the ease of check-in to the comfort of the seating, the quality of amenities and dining options, to the time it takes to get from gate to gate. Whether it’s a small regional airport or a major international hub, all airports have something different to offer.
