It’s official, Singapore’s Changi Airport is ranked the best in the world according to Airport Awards 2013, a renowned survey conducted by Skytrax aviation research organization.
Every year, travelers from over 160 countries take part in the world’s largest, independent airport passenger satisfaction survey with over 12 million people taking part in 2013. Passengers are asked to rank the world’s airports in around 40 categories, from ease of transit to shopping and security. The comprehensive survey, now in its 14th year did not place any American Airport in the top 10.
Changi (rated second in 2012) beat South Korea’s much-awarded Incheon International and Amsterdam’s Schipol Airports to the overall top spot this year. A well deserved victory for an airport that is always looking ahead.
“Singapore’s Changi airport, which rose from second in the 2012 rankings to the top spot this year, has been upgraded repeatedly since 2000, and a billion-dollar project to replace its existing budget terminal with a new fourth terminal is currently in the works.” Gulliver Business Travel, The Economist.com
If you are a traveler with an eye for a bargain or simply visiting the airport, you can now enjoy significant savings when you shop in Changi’s public areas. The increasingly popular ‘Flying Or Not, You Shop We Absorb’ program sees many retail outlets absorbing the 7% GST in Terminals 1, 2, and 3. And if shopping is your thing, you may also enjoy traveling through London, Heathrow, awarded World’s Best Airport Shopping.
