Skytrax, a UK based consultancy firm that manages an airline and airport review and ranking site, has announced the rankings for the World’s Top 10 Airports of 2020 and Asian airports have once again maintained their hegemony from the past years.
8 out of the top 10 airports are based in Asia as Singapore Changi Airport has claimed the top spot on the list for the 8th consecutive year.
Skytrax’s global airport rating system is the most widely acknowledged benchmarking system that classifies airports by the quality of airport product facilities and staff service standards.
According to Skytrax, thousands of customers from more than 100 different countries had voted for the rankings of the World’s Top 10 Airports of 2020. The voting was conducted online from September 2019 to February 2020.
The official award ceremony was originally scheduled to take place on 1 April at Passenger Terminal Expo in Paris. However, Skytrax was forced to cancel the ceremony due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead, Skytrax announced the rankings for this year’s Top 10 Airports in a recent YouTube live video.
In an official statement, CEO Skytrax, Edward Plaisted, said:
Having deferred the award announcements for nearly six weeks, we felt it was now right to try and bring some cheer into the airport industry in these difficult times.
So, here are the world’s top 10 airports for 2020.
