So, is South Korea’s Incheon International or Singapore’s Changi the envy of the world? According to two major rankings for 2010, they’re both the world’s number one airport.
Airports Council International (ACI) came out with its annual Airport Service Quality awards last week, and named—for the sixth-straight year—Incheon Airport in Seoul as the best of the best.
Meanwhile global airline review company Skytrax also revealed its own World’s Top 10 Airports ranking for 2010, and not unlike ACI’s, the majority of them are based in the Asia-Pacific. According to Skytrax, its survey this year was an ‘extremely competitive’ one that assessed (an impressive) 9.8 million completed survey interviews. Their results showed that while it was a very close race, Singapore’s Changi comes out slightly ahead of Incheon International, earning the title of 2010 World's Best Airport. Included in Skytrax’s top ten also are Hong Kong International, Munich and Kuala Lumpur, Zurich, Amsterdam Schiphol, Beijing Capital International, Auckland Int'l and Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport—placing seven of the ten in the Asia-Pacific region.
