Singapore’s Changi Airport named best in the world

Changi Airport in Singapore has been named the “World’s Best Airport” at the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards. This is the fourth time the airport has taken top honours at the awards, last winning the prize in 2010.

On top of winning the title of World’s Best Airport, Changi Airport also picked up awards for Best Airport in Asia and Best Airport for Leisure Amenities. "In winning this prestigious accolade, Singapore Changi Airport cements its place as one of the world's favourite airports and we offer sincere congratulations on what has been a fantastic year of achievement," said Edward Plaisted, chairman of Skytrax.

For the past 14 years Changi Airport has ranked among the top three airports in the world at the prestigious awards.  The awards ceremony, held at the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Geneva, also named Incheon International Airport, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Hong Kong International Airport, second, third and fourth, respectively. Beijing Capital International Airport took fifth place.

“Winning the Skytrax World's Best Airport award again is an immense honour for Changi Airport,” said Lee Seow Hiang, chief executive officer, Changi Airport Group. “It is as much a recognition of the passion of the 32,000-strong airport community that is the backbone of Changi's collaborative and well-oiled operational processes, as it is an affirmation of our mantra in putting our passengers at the heart of all that we do."

Changi Airport currently serves more than 100 airlines, operating 6,100 flights weekly, connecting Singapore to over 220 cities worldwide. As of 2012 it is the seventh busiest airport in the world, handling more than 46 million passengers a year.
