Changi Airport named ‘Best Airport’ four times this month

Singapore Changi Airport has received another five awards, including four ‘Best Airport’ titles, in the month of September 2009. These awards were for Changi’s excellence in airport facilities and services.

Changi Airport has been voted the “Best Airport in the World” by readers of Business Traveller (UK edition), a leading global travel publication. Since it first won the title in 1988, Changi Airport has won the award for 22 consecutive years.

Closer to home, Changi Airport received the same affirmation from readers of Business Traveller’s Asia-Pacific edition, who also chose Changi as the “Best Airport in the World” for the 18th consecutive year. In addition, Changi Airport was named “Best Airport Duty-Free in the World” by the magazine for the 12th year running.

In another poll conducted by online travel magazine Smart Travel Asia, Changi Airport was ranked highest in the “Best Airport Worldwide” category out of more than 100 airports. According to Smart Travel Asia, Changi Airport’s shopping facilities, greenery and colour, as well as the addition of Terminal 3 – have made Changi “a formidable competitor”.

Separately, Changi Airport also received the “Best International Airport” accolade from Travel Weekly China, a major travel trade publication in China, as part of its ‘China Travel and Meeting Industry Awards 2009’.

Chief Executive Officer of Changi Airport Group, Mr Lee Seow Hiang said, “It is our top priority to continuously improve Changi’s facilities and service standards to create an excellent Changi experience for travellers.”

Mr Lee added, “Despite the increasingly competitive operating landscape, we are heartened that Changi Airport continues to win such airport awards every year. We appreciate the very strong support that travellers worldwide continue to give us. Such positive affirmation of our efforts serves as invaluable encouragement and motivation to all staff at Changi Airport to continue to do even better for all customers.”

Since its opening in 1981, Changi Airport has won more than 300 airport awards. The five awards received this month bring to 17 the number of awards received by Changi Airport so far in 2009.
