Which Is the Best Airport in the World?

Singapore Changi Airport is often considered the best airport in the world, according to an annual survey of travelers from more than 160 countries. In 2013, Changi was ranked No. 1 for the fourth time since 2000, and it has ranked among the top three each year during this time. Surveyed travelers have cited the airport’s atmosphere, which includes five specialty gardens and six rest zones for sleeping, for why it is the best airport. Changi also is purposely modeled to be child-friendly, with video arcades and playgrounds so that even local residents can bring their children to play there, which is helpful because land is scarce in the country.

More about airports:

  • The world's busiest airport is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia, which served about 95 million passengers in 2012.

  • The largest roofed-in beer garden in Europe is located at the Munich Airport in Germany.

  • Half of the top-10 airports in 2013 were in East Asian cities, and only one non-Asian airport — Amsterdam Schiphol in the Netherlands — has ever been awarded the top honor.
