Delhi's IGI airport adjudged best in Central Asia
Heathrow was presented with the two important titles at the 2017 Skytrax World Airport Awards ceremony held in Amsterdam last night.
Malaysia's airport immigration service has been named the best in the world by airline passengers. The ranking was headed by Changi in Singapore for the fifth year running, and no Taiwanese airports featured in the top-10 for most improved airport, best airport hotels, best dining, best shopping, best regional airport, or best airport by passenger numbers.
The awards are based on 13.82 million airport survey questionnaires that were completed by 105 different nationalities of air travellers during the survey period.
Regional airports refer to the airports operating short worldwide and domestic flights, rather than having a vast intercontinental network. Within the World's Cleanest Airports category, Asian airports accounted for 8 of the top 10 contenders interrupted only by Zurich and Doha.
The passenger surveys are conducted in 550 airports around the world, and measures 39 elements in the airport travel experience that range from check-in to security, comfort to efficiency, transportation availability to friendliness, and more.
