IGIA named world's most improved airport
Sydney, May 4 (ANI): Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi, India, has been named the most improved airfield at the annual World Airport Awards.
The opening of its new, modern terminal in 2010 helped the airport to bag the label.
It was revealed while announcing the names of top 10 best airports in the world.
Asian airports dominated the list, with six of the top 10 slots awarded to airports in the region.
Incheon Airport in South Korea won the top award for the second time after first winning in 2009.
The airport was ranked in the world's top five for eight of the 10 award categories from Skytrax, which include accessibility, comfort, speed of transit, friendliness of staff, and shopping and other facilities.
The awards, announced last month, are based on surveys conducted by Skytrax with 12 million passengers of 100 different nationalities over a nine month period.
"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," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Skytrax chairman Edward Plaisted as saying.
Singapore's Changi Airport was named as the second best airport in the world while Hong Kong International Airport took the third spot.
London's Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5, opened in 2008, won the award for best airport terminal, while the airport also won the award for best shopping. Another London airport, Stansted, won the award for best low-cost airport.
The Regal Airport Hotel in Hong Kong was named the world's best airport hotel, followed by the Sofitel at London's Heathrow, the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, the Langham Place Beijing Airport and the Novotel Suvarnabhumi Bangkok. (ANI)
