About the World Airport Awards

The World Airport Awards began in 1999, when Skytrax launched its first global, Airport customer satisfaction survey.

They are regarded as a quality benchmark for the world airport industry, assessing customer service and facilities across over 500 airports.

There is no entry fee or any type of payment by an airport (or other third party) to be included in the survey or awards, with the survey and awards process fully funded by Skytrax.

The Passenger's Choice Awards

Whilst some Award winning airports may not be the favourite of everyone, we remind our readers that Award winning airports are voted for by customers. A central directive of the survey is for customers to make their own, personal choices as to which airport they consider to be the best, underlining the brand as the Passenger’s Choice Awards.

Frequently asked questions

No. The survey is commissioned, managed and funded by Skytrax. There is no cost for any airport to be included, and all airport nominations and availability to vote for an individual airport is the sole choice of the survey user. Skytrax developed the reputation of the survey by strictly adhering to a policy of no entrance fee, subscriptions, or any type of payment from an airport.

Yes, but this is monitored to maintain a strict basis that airports do not offer their customers any enticement or incentive to vote in the survey. Airports are free to encourage customers to complete the survey, and many do so every year.

No, because all Airports all allowed to do this, it is left entirely to an individual Airport's choice and there is no prerogative either way.
