Nov 16, 2018

My ExampleThe airport, the unpleasant necessity that bookends all business travels. However, every year Skytrax ranks the airports across the globe that are putting in the work to make everyone’s travels a less taxing experience. In order to determine the rankings for 2018 millions of customer questionnaires were distributed over a six-month period. The questions asked spanned topics from, quality of amenities and comfort to customer service and location of bathrooms. Can you guess what airport made it to the top stop before scrolling through the list below?

“Heathrow is my favourite, because I know it so well and there are great connections here.”
“It has free vending machines!"
“Hong Kong is my favorite, purely for the shopping”
“Most efficient airport in world & well-connected”
“London Heathrow, specifically Terminal 5 because it's bright, shiny and new full of dreamy shops that I can only window shop at!”
  “For stopover, Hong Kong - There is lots going on to keep you busy - or loungers to relax in”

Sometimes our personal airport preferences go beyond fancy amenities. We can’t all be bought by some fancy butterfly garden, after all. We asked some of our closest peers and colleagues what their favorite airports are and why.
