Changi Airport named world’s best airport 2015
Singapore Changi Airport has been voted the World’s Best Airport for the third year in a row at the 2015 World Airport Awards.
SINGAPORE CHANGI AIRPORT has been voted the World’s Best Airport for the third year in a row at the 2015 World Airport Awards.
Announced out of Paris Wednesday, the ranking is based on the results of 13.02 million surveys completed by respondents from 112 different nationalities, who rated airports for services like check-in, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and dining.
This year’s results differ little from last year, with Incheon International Airport in South Korea, Munich Airport, and Hong Kong International Airport rounding out the same four spots in 2015.
Conspicuously absent on the top 10 list are North American airports.
Changi Airport has raised the bar in airport planning, elevating what used to be a just place of transit into a local destination in and of itself.
Designed to take the stress out of flying, the hub features mini green oases such as butterfly, bamboo and orchid-themed gardens.
The Entertainment Deck includes video gaming areas, a movie theater, aviation gallery and playground.
And passengers with a layover of at least five hours can take a free, two-hour sightseeing tour around the city.
Meanwhile, specs for the newest addition to the hub, Jewel Changi Airport, are likewise impressive.
When the Jewel Changi Airport outside Terminal 1 is complete, the sprawling 10-level complex will boast an indoor forest; walking trails and gardens; and a 40-meter tall Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall that will cascade through the core of the glass, biodome complex.
