On March 14, Skytrax announced the winners of its annual Skytrax World Airport Awards, says a report on CNN. And for the fifth year in a row, Singapore took home the top prize.
The Changi Airport was named “world’s best airport,” once again — which doesn’t come as a surprise to frequent travelers who often praise the facility for its shopping, activities, food selections and more.
“Among the amenities spread through its three terminals are two 24-hour movie theaters screening the latest blockbusters for free, a rooftop swimming pool and a butterfly garden,” notes CNN’s Karla Cripps.
"Winning the Skytrax World's Best Airport Award for the fifth consecutive year is immense encouragement to our 50,000-strong airport community at Changi Airport, every one of whom is passionate about delivering the most memorable airport experience to our passengers," said Lee Seow Hiang, CEO of Changi Airport Group, in a statement.
