Singapore Changi Airport receives top accolade

For the fourth consecutive year, Singapore Changi Airport has received the honour of being the World’s Best Airport as voted by air travellers in the 2016 World Airport Awards, held at Passenger Terminal EXPO in Cologne, Germany.

Changi Airport celebrated further success at the Awards, receiving the award for Best Airport in Asia, as well as the Best Airport for Leisure Amenities. These leisure amenities include music bar lounges, cinemas, music deck, swimming pool, napping and rest areas and the in-terminal Transit Hotel.

“To be named the World’s Best Airport by Skytrax for the fourth year running is a significant achievement for Changi Airport”

Commenting on the award win, Lee Seow Hiang, Chief Executive Officer of Changi Airport Group, said “To be named the World’s Best Airport by Skytrax for the fourth year running is a significant achievement for Changi Airport and a clear affirmation that we continue to hit the right notes in our pursuit of service excellence. We do not take this recognition for granted; it is the extraordinary effort and commitment of the entire airport community that drives Changi’s success. We thank our passengers and partners alike for their continued support and confidence in us.”

Edward Plaisted, CEO of Skytrax added: “To be voted by customers as the world’s Best Airport four years in succession is a most remarkable achievement for Singapore Changi Airport, and is clear testament to the airport’s popularity amongst air travellers. Singapore Changi Airport continues to innovate in both product and service options for its customers, and focus on making the customer experience at the airport as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. To be named by global travellers as the world’s favourite airport for the 6th time in ten years is great reward not only to Changi Airport management, but for staff across every section of the airport who contribute in every little way to Singapore Changi Airport operations.”
