Singapore Once Again Named World’s Best Airport!

For the third year in a row, Skytrax has crowned Singapore Changi International Airport (SIN) the world’s best airport, with contenders for the number one spot including airports in Incheon and Munich.

Like Singapore, airports all over the world have been upping their ante to accommodate the ever-evolving standards for the comfort of travelers and anyone involved in the tourism industry. The number of cycling commuters in London have attributed to the addition of cycle centers for staff and bicycle parking at the world renowned Heathrow Airport. In addition, the demand for sustainability in Kuala Lumpur has its international airport building environmentally friendly amenities in support of its ‘Airport in a Forest, Forest in an Airport’ concept. But out of all the airports, it’s Singapore that continues to impress on all fronts.

From the moment you step foot in the airport to the minute your flight takes off, Changi International Airport exceeds expectations across the board. The array of dining options takes passengers on a gastronomic adventure around the globe, and its 350 retail stores makes it a retail paradise. The airport’s transit hub is exceptional and unparalleled with amenities like the butterfly garden, movie theaters, hotels, spas and the rooftop pool. Those with connecting flights also have the opportunity to participate in either the city of lights tour or the heritage tour, both of which are free of charge.

Possibly the best part of the transit area is the wild, four-story corkscrew slide that attracts both children and kids at heart. Standing at 40 feet tall, passengers who would like to go on a thrilling ride down The Slide @ T3 are required to make a minimum purchase of 10 Singaporean dollars.

Notoriously known for causing travel anxiety, airports aim to please travelers in areas such as service, security and entertainment. The general rule of thumb in earning this prestigious award is to keep passengers as happy as possible, and Singapore has successfully got us ironically wishing for flight delays and long layovers.
