The Korean airport earned the title “World’s Best Airport” at the annual World Airport Awards

.…Incheon Airport in Seoul! It’s not the first time this Korean airport has won the honour of being the world’s best airport. This year again, Asian airports led the way for best airports while London Heathrow ranked 11th, not bad considering the recent epically long border delays.

The Korean airport earned the title “World’s Best Airport” at the annual World Airport Awards sponsored by Skytrax just ahead of Changi in Singapore and Hong Kong International Airport. Is anyone surprised? Incheon International Airport is amazing!

The results were calculated after a long satisfaction survey completed by passengers in airports, conducted by Skytrax, a leading consulting firm in the air travel industry. Covering 338 airports and surveying more than 12 million passengers from more than 100 different nationalities… we’d say they did their homework to elect this year’s best airports.
