Skytarx, the most prestigious brand associated with the recognition and reviews of air travel standards worldwide, has recently released the annual report of the World Airline Awards and World Airport Awards.
The coveted 2012 World Airport Awards were announced April 19 at a ceremony held at the Passenger Terminal EXPO in Vienna, Austria.
Out of 388 airports surveyed worldwide, Incheon International Airport in Seoul ranks number one, followed by Singapore's Changi Airport, Hong Kong International Airport, Amsterdam's Schiphol, Beijing Capital International Airport, Munich, Zurich, Kula Lumpur, Vancouver and Central Japan International Airport.
Looking across the entire survey, Incheon International Airport achieved top-5 finishes in eight out of ten eligible categories, which is a remarkable vote of confidence by airline travelers in standards being delivered at Incheon International Airport SKYTRAX chairman Edward Plaisted said.
Aside from the inherent benefit that many of these airports have in the most modern infrastructure and terminal facilities, the real differentiator that comes across in customer feedback is that the service culture across these Asian airports is very often at a much higher quality level, and most importantly delivers in a consistent manner, Plaisted said in a press statement.
