The world’s best airports for 2023 have been revealed.

Singapore’s Changi Airport has been given the accolade in this year’s World Airport Awards.

The awards are created by airline and airport ranking site Skytrax, and winners are based on the results of a global airport customer satisfaction survey.

Doha’s Hamad International Airport came in second place, having dropped from the top spot in 2021 and 2022.

Tokyo Haneda and Seoul Incheon were awarded third and fourth places respectively, while Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport took fifth place.

This is the 12th time Changi Airport has been awarded the best airport title.

The 2023 win comes after the Singapore airport took third place in 2022.
