Swedish travellers give Changi Airport the thumbs up

Business travellers have voted Singapore Changi Airport the `Best International Airport` in the world…

Business travellers have voted Singapore Changi Airport the `Best International Airport` in the world, in survey conducted by Swedish business travel magazine, Affarsresenaren. The magazine asked respondents in Sweden to name and grade an airport they thought was the best.

This is the first time Affarsresenaren introduced an airport category in the survey, which has been running for seven years. Changi was ranked ahead of Denmark`s Copenhagen and Netherland`s Amsterdam airports. The award was presented at a ceremony held in conjunction with a travel trade fair in Gothenburg, Sweden on 18 March 2005.

This is the third award for Changi Airport so far this year, and we are glad travellers have continued to be delighted with the Changi Experience. To serve our customers better, we are upgrading Changi Airport. Parts of Terminal 2 (T2) have been hoarded up for renovation works at one time or another since August 2003. It has been a challenge to carry out noisy and disruptive refurbishment works in an operational Airport. We thank all travellers for their support and understanding and look forward to serving them better when the renovation at T2 is completed next year, said Mr Wong Woon Liong, Director-General of Civil Aviation, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS).

Changi Airport received the two other awards in February 2005. Buying Business Travel magazine gave Changi the `Best WorldwideAirport` award in an inaugural reader survey among business travel decision-makers and company purchasers in the UK.

Readers of another UK-based publication, Wanderlust, also voted Changi the top Worldwide Airport award for the fourth consecutive time.
