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.

Favorite Airports:

1. Singapore Changi
2. Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok
3. Amsterdam Schiphol

Worst Airports:

1. London Heathrow
2. Paris CDG
3. Los Angeles LAX

The poll took place in September 2009 and was carried out online, with 14,526 Priority Pass members completing the survey.
