YVR Airport Voted Best Airport Eighth Year In A Row


Research firm SkyTrax has named Singapore Airport "World's Best Airport" for a fifth consecutive year over regional rival Hong Kong.

The Singapore global airport clinched the top spot this year ahead of Tokyo's Haneda airport, South Korea's Incheon worldwide Airport, the Munich Airport in Germany and the Hong Kong global Airport.

The Skytrax win comes one week after MSP International won another award, Best Airport in North America in its size category for service quality, based on surveys conducted by Airports Council International.

GMR Group-led consortium Delhi International Airport on Wednesday said Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport has been declared as the "Best Airport in India and Central Asia" by Skytrax. Changi Airport has held the former title since the introduction of the award category in 2009.
