Singapore Changi Airport has once again been named the World’s Best Airport at the 2014 Skytrax World Airport Awards this morning, at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Barcelona, Spain.
It is the fifth time Changi Airport has achieved this accolade and the very first time in Changi Airport’s history to win it twice in a row.
Despite immense competition for what has been touted as the aviation industry’s most coveted award, Changi Airport was given the vote of confidence by over 12 million travellers around the globe through Skytrax’s global survey held online each year.
“Winning this prestigious award for the second year in a row, Changi Airport Singapore is showing itself to be much more than an airport,” said Edward Plaisted, Chief Executive Officer of Skytrax.
“Changi Airport offers a travel experience in itself and continues to develop its quality standards to be named the world’s favourite airport again. Changi Airport is a well-known leader and innovator for the airport industry and genuinely delights and surprises travellers who are lucky enough to enjoy the airport facilities. Changi Airport demonstrates how to make the airport experience an enjoyable part of the journey that is so important in today’s fast-moving world.”
Changi Airport enjoyed double success at the Awards, also receiving the award as Best Airport for Leisure Amenities.
