Toyko International Airport (Haneda) and Seoul's Inchoen International Airport ranked No. 2 and No. 3 respectively as the world's best airports.

Following on from 737 MAX 8 rollout and flight test, Boeing is now rolling out the first new 737 MAX 9, right on schedule. Such planes are popular with budget airlines that comprise a key market for both aircraft manufacturers.

Asian airports dominated the top three overall places, with the big victor being Singapore's Changi Airport which was named World's Best Airport for the fifth consecutive year, followed by Japan's Tokyo International Aiport (Haneda) in second place, and South Korea's Incheon International Airport in third.

He also added that as the airport expands its facilities to serve more passengers in the years ahead, the team will continue to work closely with airport partners to further enhance the Changi experience.

The award was based on a survey that involved 13.82 million customer nominations across 105 nationalities, with Changi taking the top spot out of the 550 airports worldwide that took part. Among the service and product key performance indicators include travellers' satisfaction during check-ins, arrivals, transfers, shopping, security and immigration through to departure at the gate. Heathrow won the accolade of Best Airport for Shopping" in the Shopping' in the Skytrax's World Airport Survey, as well as "Best Airport in Western Europe' for the eight year running. Without their support, we could not have achieved this. This achievement demonstrates the airport's constant endeavor to improve the experience of transiting passengers by high setting standards of customer service.

At this point, travelers might be wondering if there will ever be an airport that can surpass much-lauded Changi.
