Changi Airport reclaims top spot in global survey

Singapore Changi Airport has been named the World's Best Airport at the 2013 Skytrax World Airport Awards held in Geneva, beating other world airports like Incheon International Airport in Korea and Hong Kong International Airport.

It is the fourth time Changi Airport bagged this prize, with its last victory in 2010. This year, it also managed to secure awards for Best Airport in Asia and Best Airport for Leisure Amenities.

The 2013 Awards are based on The World Airport Survey, which included 395 airports worldwide this year. The survey evaluates key performance indicators in areas such as check-in, transfers, security and immigration, and shopping.

Chief executive officer of Changi Airport Group, Mr Lee Seow Hiang said: "Winning the Skytrax World's Best Airport award again is an immense honour for Changi Airport. It is as much a recognition of the passion of the 32,000-strong airport community that is the backbone of Changi's collaborative and well-oiled operational processes, as it is an affirmation of our mantra in putting our passengers at the heart of all that we do."
