A survey of more than 14,500 frequent travelers,
representing 160 countries around the world, has revealed
Singapore Changi airport as the world’s favorite airport, closely
followed by Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok.
It’s the second year running that these two
airports have occupied the top two positions in this survey,
although in 2008 the positions were reversed.
The poll was
conducted by Priority Pass, an independent
airport lounge programme.
Speaking about the results, Jonathan French, Head
of Brand for Priority Pass said, “The travelers who took part
in this survey took almost 250,000 flights between them over the
last year (an average of 17 each), and that means they know a
thing or two about airports. Opinions about both Changi and Chek
Lap Kok are almost universally good throughout the world, and this
accolade is well-deserved.”
In third place in the poll of
favorite airports was Amsterdam Schiphol. Also in the top ten were
Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Seoul Incheon. Things do not look
as good for London Heathrow which “won” the poll for the world’s
worst airport for the second year running.
