Why Changi Airport Can’t Stop Winning World’s Best Airport (Year After Year After…)

Why Changi Airport Can’t Stop Winning World’s Best Airport (Year After Year After…)

Where has all the competition gone?

What’s new? Nothing much, really. Changi Airport has just won the title for World’s Best Airport (again) for its fifth year running, and its eighth time in total.

On top of that, it also swept the awards for Best Airport in Asia and Best Airport for Leisure Amenities.

It’s part nation pride, part objectivity, but we say Changi Airport deserves every bit of the glory it receives. Because there’s really nowhere else you should bask in these world class amenities like in Changi Airport:  

A lounge with latest sports events on the large screen

You don’t wanna miss the English Premier League highlights while you’re on your transit, do you?

An airport boulevard prettier than your broken dreams

They say beauty comes from inside out. But even our outsides are killin’ it.

A new terminal we already know will kick ass

Terminal 4 is slated for opening in the second half of 2017, and we can’t be more thrilled. Biometric self-service check-ins and bag drops to Peranakan-style architecture – Changi Airport can’t seem to stop topping itself, can it?

See you in 2018.

Same time, same topic.
